Our Families

Our families are the backbone of our community, united by our common goal of bringing our individual skills and knowledge to create a learning community. We work together to support our children in the challenge of growing and learning.

Parents contribute 65 hours of in-kind labor each school year, but choose the level at which they participate in governance. There are tuition reduction positions for parent jobs and parents participate in field trips and develop special events. Parents have the opportunity to develop and teach workshops to share their family’s unique interests. Through volunteer opportunities, monthly parent meetings, and clear guidelines for communication, we maintain active connections to each family.
