Surrounded by majestic white oaks, Sequoias, fields, and wetlands, Heritage students thrive in an environment that honors childhood and cultivates a sense of wonder. Each child is a marvel, and the pursuit of knowledge can open them to vast opportunities. Children pass through childhood but once, and Heritage School offers a unique program that nurtures curiosity, commitment, and confidence.
Since 1984, Heritage School has provided an interdisciplinary, thematic curriculum for students in grades one through eight. Heritage School strives for mastery of academics, emphasizing a joyful education tailored to each individual child. Heritage students embrace challenge, work cooperatively, and develop self direction.
- Where learning by doing transforms common cardboard into an eight foot tall Taj Mahal and terra cotta clay into a West African village . . . .
- Where learning in depth leads children to research in the classroom all about marine biology and taxonomy, creating their own field guides, and then to discover a baby octopus while tide pooling at the Oregon coast . . . .
- Where “hands on” learning sends us forth to determine the height of the towering Sequoias surrounding our play field or to calculate the distance children could leap if they, like frogs, could jump twelve times their bodies’ lengths . . . .
