Letter from the Director

Dear Prospective Parent,

We are pleased to help you explore your interest in Neighborhood School (NS). Our classrooms and outdoor areas are buzzing with the sounds of learning and friendship. This ‘school in a house,’ where students are deeply known, where all learners are truly valued, and where restoration, equity, and community are more than just buzzwords, could be a great fit for your learner(s) and your family.

All ages of children and adults are involved with Social and Racial Justice learning and anti-bias curriculum. We are raising young activists here, and they are helping us look at NS and weed out characteristics of white dominant culture. For example, power sharing (for all ages) replaces power hoarding; realistic work plans take the place of a sense of urgency; and teamwork becomes an antidote to individualism. NS is a great place for transformative learning!

How to Apply

Tricia Morrow, Director
