Our Modes of Engagement

Family School is unique in many ways.

But perhaps our primary distinctives from traditional schools are our modes of engagement - the standards-based curricular components that make up the identity of Family School. While each classroom implements the modes in a manner unique to the teacher, they do embody the philosophy of Family School and its staff. They integrate the standards of various disciplines into one ongoing activity.

This integration allows for creating the most efficient manner of coverage over several grade spans of expectations. We believe that children learn best through the ability to explore, connect, discuss and deeply understand the world around them. The modes of engagement offer a consistent and successful way for children to engage in and own their learning on a daily basis.
