Inspired by Nature:

At The Birch School we are inspired by and grounded in nature. The natural world sustains human life, and so all things relate back to nature. In these times of limited resources and increasing human damage to the natural world, we believe it is more important than ever to learn about, appreciate, and relate to nature and the outdoors.

We take inspiration from what we see in the natural world. At The Birch School, we embrace diversity, and honor and celebrate the unique contribution that each child makes to the school community. We encourage group participation, and consider each child and each family part of the school community. We have weekly and daily school meetings where all students are asked to participate.

We have a clearly defined Democratic process that we, as a school, consciously participate in. Students take responsibiilty for themselves, learn to keep their word and be accountable to others.
