we strive to help children become active citizens in a democracy that is still being shaped. We want our students to be a part of that shaping in ethical, moral, creative and thoughtful ways.
There are three important components that serve as a guide in the development of the SMASH program. First, is a curriculum that builds upon student interest and real life issues and problems. Next, a structure that offers flexibility that includes heterogeneous and multi-age group arrangements for children. Finally, an environment that embraces freedom with responsibilitiy and addresses the balance between the needs of the individual and the needs of the community.
Our instructional program staff is continuously focused on these important elements in order to build a solid, yet ever changing innovative program.
