Learn. Listen. Know.

The Knowing Garden offers a collaborative and interactive education for students ages 5 to 12. We encourage our students to engage with the world as emotionally balanced innovators, catalysts and problem solvers. Enrollment for students ages 13 and 14 will open in 2018.

Recognizing that humans are natural learners, we encourage and empower one another to keep learning, develop passion projects, cultivate healthy relationships, foster inclusion and embrace nature. We believe that a project-rich curriculum with real-life experiences that include success and failure will develop academic proficiency and a growth-mindset — setting our students on the path to their personal best. With credentialed teachers, parent participation and low-ratios, our learning plans emerge in partnership with students and families. THE KNOWING GARDEN is a not-for-profit private school with a public purpose.
