ABOUT WILDFLOWER OPEN CLASSROOM

HOW IS WILDFLOWER OPEN CLASSROOM UNIQUE?

  • We strive to educate the “whole child,” addressing the academic, social, emotional, creative, aesthetic and physical growth and developmental needs of each student.

  • Warm and welcoming open classrooms contain a large area for gathering and small workstations, allowing students to work alternately in large groups, small groups and individually.

  • Classes are multi-grade, broadening social peer groups and encouraging individualized instruction where teachers focus on needs rather than grade level expectations.

  • Teachers use an Integrated Thematic Curriculum approach, organizing learning around themes that incorporate all academic areas.

  • Parents and community members are able to assist in the classroom so that students receive more individualized attention.

  • All classrooms are equipped with several new Apple computers, iPads, and high-speed internet, increasing academic resources and access to educational information. All technology is filtered and monitored for student safety and security.

  • All actions and decisions made by the Wildflower community are guided by eight core principles: collaboration, community, stewardship, joy and adventure in learning, integrity, personal responsibility, being respectful, and positive and honest communication.
