About La Tierra Community School
124 N Virginia St, Prescott, AZ 86314, US
La Tierra Community School provides an active, transformative educational experience and values a respect for diversity, academic rigor and a commitment to social and environmental justice. Our program uses the natural and cultural resources of the Southwest to foster local, relevant connections for children through learning expeditions. We value children’s sense of curiosity and discovery as well as their ability to think critically, reflect upon their world and promote positive change in their community.
La Tierra Community School, a charter school in Prescott, AZ, began its adventure to provide the innovative and inspiring learning model, Expeditionary Learning, to children of the Tri-City communities in 2010. The school was originally only 13 students, in three elementary grades, in one classroom. It has since grown to approximately 100 students, grades kindergarten through sixth.
La Tierra is Genuinely a Community School
We are a tight knit learning community with a sincere love for children and learning, inspiring cultural awareness and citizen scholarship. We believe that to truly effect change in our world, we need to empower children through education. While experiencing the joy of learning, La Tierra Community School students demonstrate Academic Mastery, Social Engagement & the Power of Diversity! We are the only Expeditionary Learning elementary school in the tri-city area.
Currently, our public charter school serves grades K-7. La Tierra Community School is committed to providing a transformative education to all of its students. Our ambition is to inspire in our children the knowledge to become citizen scholarswho will inspire change in their globally connected world.
