The educational model of MindStream Micro-School is a paradigm shift away from traditional education. The school is viewed as a living, responsive organism that is student, family, and community centered. We believe everyone in the environment is important and has an impact on the community. Our focus is on socio-emotional development that supports both cognitive and creative growth.
Our academic work is inquiry-based, dynamic, and follows student interests. Instruction delivered in the classroom and one-on-one settings follows a prescriptive and diagnostic model, identifying students learning needs and interests and responding with instruction. Multiple learning channels (auditory, visual, and kinesthetic) are engaged throughout the learning process.
We promote a love of learning and prepare students for the intellectual and social challenges of college and life. The use of technology is encouraged in a way to complement each student's learning style and enhance their problem-solving capability. Our students develop an understanding and appreciation of their unique learning style as they become independent and effective self-advocates.
