Creativity is at the core
Creativity is a necessary tool in the 21st century. All children are inherently creative and we provide conditions and ways of learning to develop the students’ creative muscles, not only in Music, Art and Drama classes, but in all subjects.
Experiential hands-on learning happens in all classes. Children learn creative processes such as divergent and convergent thinking, deferring judgment, appreciating multiple perspectives, taking risks, reflecting, learning from mistakes and trying again.
There are opportunities to take risks and, regardless of success or failure, children understand that the learning is the most important.
Children become confident in their own creativity and, when asked, most of our students will describe themselves as creative.
