School MissionThe Neighborhood School’s mission is based on our belief that children thrive when we build on their strengths and provide a safe and nurturing environment.  Our practices and policies are rooted in anti-bias and anti-racist work, which involves the entire school community.  Our interdisciplinary, inquiry-based curriculum encompasses children’s interests and is responsive to the needs of each child.  We collaborate with families in order to foster a community that is supportive of the whole child.  School-wide policies and practices are formed collaboratively and dynamically to provide a cohesive and thoughtful environment for our community.
