About The Co-Op School
We are a progressive constructivist program that teaches to the individualities of every child and every unique classroom. The Co-op School models its curriculum based on these following beliefs:
Joyful learning lays the foundation for lifelong learning and critical thinking.
Creativity cannot exist without passion.
Children learn best when they are invested in finding out the answers to their questions and when learning is embedded in meaningful contexts, which makes learning fun and engaging.
It is important to us to educate the entire child on all levels: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.
Students work as a group and think as individuals, expressing feelings and contributing ideas peacefully and respectfully.
Students will leave The Co-op School confident in their ability to effect change in the community and comfortable reflecting on ways to challenge and grow themselves. As creative problem solvers, each with unique viewpoints and learning styles, students will embrace the idea of a more equitable world. We strive to inspire passion and teach children to become protagonists in their own educational journey by fostering their innate sense of curiosity and creativity.
