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.
This is a book written by kids for kids on how to be successful in life. This encouraging book takes a child on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment. Each of the eight authors share their success tips and strategies with the reader. It is the writing team's intention to help other children improve their self-confidence and self-esteem through personal responsibility.
