Studios

The Studios at The Forest School are beautiful and flexible spaces for work, learning, and play.  Each Studio is a tight-knit community of mixed-age learners who support each other and collaborate daily. This environment fosters a culture of respect and much of the character development that occurs here. 

We replaced external motivators like high-stakes test scores and grades with an intrinsic growth mindset, so our students are motivated to work hard and have fun. Respect is the foundation for every other skill we learn at The Forest School.  We respect our time, our fellow learners, our space, and our materials. The students work together to create rules for the space. Some areas might be off limits for play, while others are more flexible.  Ultimately, the students come together to agree to those ground rules and promises—all based on a key promise to not distract themselves or each other during times of work.

SPARK STUDIO

The Spark Studio is for learners ages 4-6. This studio is an authentic Montessori environment of whole child development: cognitive, physical, emotional, and social. Our young learners get to experience hands-on quests, age-appropriate Socratic discussion, team building, and play-based learning. They practice basic goal setting and complete challenges at their own pace to earn learning “badges”. The Spark Studio builds foundations of reading, math, science, citizenship, and independent learning skills that prepare young people to soar in the Elementary Studio.
