Welcome to The Knowing Garden. Join our community of self-propelled learners inspired to take risks and innovate.
The Knowing Garden Elementary School offers a collaborative and interactive approach to education. Our teacher and parent community empowers individuals to love learning, cultivate relationships, embrace nature and engage with the world as innovators and catalysts.
Our upcoming Information nights are designed to give parents information about how learning happens, our community connection and the evidence-based research on education reform. You will hear about:
- Constructivism & Cooperative Learning – Where interactive curriculum is presented whole to part and student questions are highly valued. Students work mostly in groups in mixed age classrooms.
- Brain Science & Development – By understanding the way we experience and connect, we can help students know themselves, develop mindfulness and learn how to be their best.
- Whole Child & Family – Parent participation is an essential component to the experience at TKG. In order to keep the mind, bodies and hearts of our students and families connected and safe, families are actively involved in meetings, celebrations and problem solving.
- Capacity Building – Real-life experiences and lessons are seen as opportunities for students, who are seen as thinkers in control of their learning, to solve their own problems as well as those of their concentric communities.
Thank you for visiting TKG. We are looking forward to sharing our school with you. The Knowing Garden is located at St.Andrew’s Church in Redondo Beach (we are independently run).
Applications are due March 11, 2016 and because our enrollment process includes 2 to 3 meetings, applications are processed as they are received.
Interviews/Meetings are scheduled after the application has been received.
