New American School: Fairhaven
Here is a model for a school, and the students talk about its effectiveness.
This from their website:
Fairhaven students ages 5 through 19 and beyond are free to decide for
themselves how to spend their days. Motivated by curiosity and the drive to
become competent adults, they grow emotionally, creatively, and
intellectually—through play, school governance, conversation, the arts, classes,
computer activities, reading, and the exploration of nature. All kinds of
learning, all types of intelligence are valued.
This reminds me of the how the Society of Friends operated their schools, and the impressive intelligent accomplishments their students make.
