Children are introduced to reading, writing, and math through experiential learning, and are given time to explore their interests through research and play. Students learn to collaborate in small, mixed-age classes with teachers who pay close attention to each child’s developmental readiness to learn. Sequoyah students are expected to take an active role in their learning – even our youngest students set goals and periodically reflect on their process and progress.[/cs_text][cs_text style=”font-weight:400;”]Learn more:
