Grading/Evaluation

We do not follow a traditional grading system for student evaluation, and students are not required to take standardized tests. Your child’s teacher will give you a written report each trimester based on the student’s progress, attitude, and efforts. We offer two conference periods throughout the school year, in addition to offering to meet with you more frequently if you would prefer.

 

Homework

We do not give homework for our students in grades K-4.  In today’s busy world, spending time with your family in the evenings should not be a privilege. We encourage families to connect and spend this time how they see fit, not continuing school work.  By fifth grade we begin incorporating homework with projects that require time outside of the class work periods to support students in goal-setting, task completion, and time management.
