What We Teach
Our school is an innovative, child-centered approach to education, developed a century ago by a woman ahead of her time.
Our parents are amazed by how avidly our students absorb knowledge from their surroundings. Given developmentally appropriate materials and the freedom to follow their interests, they joyfully learn to teach themselves.
The goal of our education is to foster a child’s natural inclination to learn. Canyon Vista teachers guide rather than instruct, linking each student with activities that meet his interests, needs, and developmental level. The classroom is designed to allow movement and collaboration, as it also promotes concentration and a sense of order.
