Benefits of Enrolling in The Open School

Each child is treated with dignity, as humans with their own goals, needs, and paths.

Our students learn that their voice, their thoughts, and their interests are valued and valuable. This builds their self-confidence and independence.

Our small community means that your child is in a physically & emotionally safe & caring environment absent of traditional safety issues like bullying.

We support your child’s ability to make their own choices, learn from those choices, and grow socially and emotionally.

Our mixed age environment helps your child to grow in compassion and leadership, preparing them for the real world.
