What is Purposeful Education?
Purposeful education means there is more to teaching than straight academics. Our goal is to prepare your children to be successful adults. And we believe the best way to do that is through purposeful education with our four C’s – Culture, Collaboration, Critical thinking, and Communication.
No child is the same, and no child learns in the same way. At Shady Oaks, we use a combination of methodologies to provide a high quality, skills-based education to our students that includes child centered learning, play-based education, and participatory learning.
We shift the balance from the teacher to the student.
Participatory learning encourages students to take control of the learning experience with teacher assistance.
