Community School supports the peaceable school philosophy. By definition, a peaceable school is an educational community that encourages students to take responsibility for their actions and to use conflict resolution skills to solve their conflicts. Through discussions and hands-on experiences, we teach our students the “Big One”: Treat yourself, others and the environment with care. We explore our differences, and learn to respect those differences, whether they involve appearance, background, ability, or opinion.
The BIG One
Our guiding and central rule is called the Big One: Treat yourself, others, and the environment with care.
• From it, we learn to take personal responsibility and to become accountable for our actions.
• Students learn that diversity strengthens our community and that differences enrich our perspective.
• We are committed to multicultural, nonsexist education that promotes understanding and acceptance.
