At its best, schooling can be about how to make a life, which is quite different from how to make a living

Neil Postman

What is school for? To prepare children to be workers, cogs in a machine? To develop competitiveness among peers and breed individual ‘winners’?  We think not.  Sara Curry Day School is built on two strong principles: We believe children need Emotional Intelligence and Self Motivation to fully grow cognitively.  We believe the world is a better place if we can learn to communicate with others and work together to achieve our highest potential as individuals and community members.  Children are capable of going further than we can even imagine..when they are engaged and self-motivated their academic achievements are boundless. At our school, children are listened to, their goals and instincts are validated, all in a safe and structured workplace where they are the visionaries, we the guides.
