Learn. Listen. Know.

The Knowing Garden Elementary School offers a collaborative and interactive approach to education for people who want to be empowered by learning through relationship with self, others, and the environment.

THE KNOWING GARDEN is a community Elementary school in Los Angeles’ Southbay neighborhood. It was founded in 2011 by a group of parents who believe that school should be a place where students, teachers, and parents alike can develop their passions, learn to be in relationships, nurture personal purpose, and be catalysts for social change. Our school was built to provide a safe environment where empowered citizens can learn to take ownership of their learning and can practice problem-solving and conflict resolution within the culture of connection.
