SUMMER HILL PROGRAM DESCRIPTION


Our goal is to set a foundation for learning that will assist the children throughout their academic lives. Our students are encouraged to become as autonomous as possible. This is accomplished by providing an exceptional teaching staff and creating a very unique environment. In each of our three separate learning areas (free choice, art, and movement/music) we emphasize; decision making, (choosing activities), and competency (being able to engage in an activity from beginning to end.)
