Philosophy

Our school’s emphasis on conflict resolution and open-ended activities work well in a mixed-age classroom — reinforcing social skills for older children, while maintaining an atmosphere that allows younger children to learn to be in charge of themselves.

Pumpkin Patch Harvest

The following fall, we return to Farmer Anne's pumpkin patch to harvest our pumpkins. It is a favorite Tillamook tradition, by far.
