Open Mind School was founded and its mission established on the beliefs that:
All children should have access to a quality education that provides a broad range of experiences. Students should actively participate in their own learning. Teaching should be based on the learning styles of the students. Integrating multiple methodologies makes implementation of best practice more individualized. Everyone should have the opportunity to share thoughts, express emotions, and be heard by caring professionals. Students, families, and professionals must work in collaboration to effectively help students reach their maximum potential. Providing regular opportunities for inclusive experiences is important to build openness and understanding in society. Training and support for staff is fundamental in maintaining a well informed team to best serve the children in the school.
Do you believe that every child should have access to quality, comprehensive education based on individual learning styles?
