WHY THE SYCAMORE SCHOOL?
- The middle & high school years are a pivotal, predictive, and possibly life-altering stage of development.
- Conventional education is focused on standardized tests, rigid standards and forced acceleration that diminishes curiosity and the desire to learn.
- Conventional education often creates excessive stress and can undermine individual development of character, connection to the community and compassion.
- Traditional practices force students into one way of learning and thinking, producing a system of winners and losers. Our world needs strong leaders, thinkers, and feelers, not just survivors.
School should be a place where students thrive and don’t just survive. The Sycamore School cultivates intellectual curiosity, independent thought, and a love of learning. We can help transform how your child experiences education. Learn more about an innovative approach to learning.
