Blue School

0

Blue School’s inquiry-based approach to education emphasizes the value of play, from the dramatic play areas of the 3s program to play with language and project work in the 5th grade. 

Children construct some of their most important learning through play. Joy, engagement, and relatedness increase the possibility for learning and creativity and are required for rigorous and powerful educational experiences. At Blue School, play is one of the ways children express themselves, process new topics and ideas, and form relationships. The Blue School program fosters creativity, promotes academic excellence, nurtures human relationships, and inspires a growing passion for learning.
