“School leaders have adopted a mission to use brain-based instructional methods to educate the whole child in a developmentally appropriate and nurturing environment. That mission is carried out passionately and with fidelity by all staff members in a classroom. The school’s children are highly engaged in a theme-based instructional process that allows them to connect prior knowledge to new learning.” Cognia Review.
