Our Educational Philosophy

At The Farm School students learn as they apply basic skills and content to real-world issues with a focus on peace, equality and sustainability. We use responsive curriculum to connect what our students learn to their and our community’s needs, interests, experiences and values. We tailor curriculum to individual student’s wants and needs.63

How We Run

The school is open five days a week. We have our regularly scheduled classes Monday through Thursday. Fridays have a different focus each year.

What We Learn

We offer an array of optional classes; some are traditionally based, whereas some are of students’ and community members’ own creation.

  • Science, Math and Technology:
    Applying science, math and technology towards personal, community and planetary peace and sustainability.
  • Social Science: Applying social science towards peaceful, equitable, and sustainable solutions to personal, community and international conflicts.
  • Communication Arts: Communicating in the service of equality, peace and sustainability for all beings using multiple languages, music, art forms and media.
