What if we combined everything we know works in learning into one definitive curriculum? Taking the best work from Piaget, Montessori, Malaguzzi, Steiner, Gardner, Dewey, public schools and private endowments? Could we change humanity? We think so.
The School House is an ode to all that we love about our country, the first country in the world to offer free education to its citizens 120 years ago (ours can’t be free, but it will be reasonable) and to the great Glass School House presented at the World’s Fair in 1915 that allowed the world to see how the science of learning could positively affect what we do in our classrooms.
Our teachers are not only trained in Montessori, but in three other proven pedagogical methods including Project-Based Learning, Reggio-Emilia and Socratic Method. Our curriculum map is carefully constructed integrating largely forgotten elements like performing arts, sports and civics. Our administrators are salaried at no more than the highest paid teachers and our entire staff meets for 3 hours every week to collaborate. Parents are an integrated part not of a standard PTA but our School House Enrichment Program. Two AMI trained Ambassadors of Kindness are charged with the daily culture of our campus emphasizing grace and courtesy. Chickens grace the School Yard and augmented reality sandboxes bring hands-on learning into the 21st century. These are just a few of the innovations at The School House. And we’re sure to have many more we continue to expand the American Emergent Curriculum.
Thank you for being a part of changing what school can be. I look forward to your participation and your faith in the beauty of human possibility through education.
