Mission Statement:
Family School’s motto, From Roots to Wings, expresses our instructional focus of providing strong foundational skills to nurture students’ independence and lifelong learning.

Program Description:
Family School embraces child-centered learning that involves families, students and teachers working together in a multi-age setting. Our multi-grade classrooms support strong academic achievement. The wide range of skills and abilities in a blended classroom nurtures the whole child through peer modeling and cooperation. The project-based curriculum is flexible and adapted to meet the needs of our students, allowing each student to progress at her or his own pace.

School Highlights:

  • Strong academics: Emphasis on literature-based language arts, hands-on math, science and social studies, integrated with multicultural themes
  • Explorations: Multi-age, daily choice enrichment classes blending grades 1–5 in visual and performing arts, science, journalism, technology, service learning and other high-interest activities
  • Mentorship program: Pairing students in grades 4 and 5 with community members to learn about professions, arts and services
  • Peer mediation program: Students working in teams to problem-solve with their peers on the playground and other settings at school
  • Title I school: Providing supplemental academic support for individuals in small group settings or one-on-one

School Improvement Goals:

  • Continue to maintain high academic achievement for all students in all academic areas, while staying true to a developmental model
  • Learn from each other, and treat each other with respect and integrity
