Welcome to the Neighborhood School!

The Neighborhood School believes children thrive best when we build on their strengths and provide them with a safe and nurturing environment.  We have rooted our practices and policies in anti-bias and anti-racist work that involves the entire school community.  Our interdisciplinary, inquiry-based curriculum encompasses children’s interests and is responsive to each child’s individual needs.  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.

  • Dyanthe’s Weekly Letter

    Dear Families,

    It’s beginning to feel like winter, even though we are still over a month away.  Remember that children go outside for recess unless it’s raining.  Please ensure your child has all the necessary accessories (hat, scarf, mittens, snow pants, and coat) to stay warm and active; it’s crucial children come to school prepared to play outside as temperatures drop.  Please also remember that we keep windows open all year round to ensure proper classroom ventilation, and it can get cold!  Think layers. ; )

    All families must submit one Emergency Contact Form per child each year.  Only 89 families have completed it so far!  Please take a few minutes to complete this. Thank you!

    I am resharing the Family Resources: Native American Cultures to support you in discussing Thanksgiving with your children beyond the singular narrative that reinforces negative stereotypes and myths about the Native People.  Whatever family traditions you honor this weekend, enjoy the long and very well-deserved break.  I hope that it feels restful and rejuvenating.  



About Us

We believe children learn by making sense of their world and experiences. We have seen that they learn best through first-hand experiences with people, materials, and places. This is why trips are an important part of the curriculum, along with the use of concrete materials, dramatizations, and simulations as ways for children to recreate the themes and concepts they are studying.
