Satori School provides a non-sectarian, quality alternative education for the children of our community. All children are eligible for the services provided by Satori, regardless of race, color, sex, national and ethnic origins. The school’s mission is to create a nurturing environment where children discover fundamentals across disciplines within the context of an integrated real world curriculum while having the opportunity to work at their individual level of challenge.
The school serves children in Pre-K through fifth grade, in small multi-age classes. Each class has a two-grade span and a maximum of twelve students with a credentialed teacher. The multi-age classroom creates a supportive learning environment for all students. The nurturing nature of the school environment is further fostered by daily direct experience in learning communication skills and practicing problem solving.
All of the traditional subjects are taught using traditional textbooks regularly supplemented with manipulatives, hands-on experiences and real-world exposures. The children have opportunities to experience the disciplines in an integrated fashion as they participate in thematic units within the classroom and as participants in school-wide thematic units.
Parental involvement is the cornerstone of a child’s education. Children must see that their parents are interested and place importance to the task. We require parental involvement in the school, ranging from volunteering in school activities and fundraising efforts to serving as Board officers of the school.
