Experience the Joy of Learning at Mulberry School
At the heart of great education, one finds students who are intellectually and collaboratively engaged learners. Mulberry students learn how to think critically and solve problems. We create a balance between integrated thematic projects, direct instruction and inquiry-based learning, providing each student with opportunities to become self-reflective thinkers through active, creative classrooms. No one educational perspective works for all students. Our faculty has the education, knowledge and flexibility to choose from proven methods and techniques, allowing us to meet the needs of a broad base of learners. Students are academically challenged at their own level, and always encouraged toward higher levels of personal excellence and achievement.
Social & Emotional Education
At the core of our instruction, Mulberry fosters social and emotional growth through the Positive Discipline model, giving time to class meetings, and supporting day-to-day interactions. We empower students to be nurturing and contributing members of the community, valuing not just the developing intellect, but the well being of the whole child. Our students know who they are, express themselves with eloquence, and advocate for themselves and others.
Creativity is everywhere at Mulberry School. The creative process is integrated throughout the curriculum at every grade level. Students master diverse media. Every child’s imaginative self-expression is nurtured through a combination of teacher led and free exploration activities.
Diversity is explored and celebrated in its many forms throughout our program and school. We provide an environment where differences in culture, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, religion and family tradition are safely shared and respected. Students learn to appreciate their fellow classmates, both for their similarities and differences.
As the foundation upon which our school is based, community enhances all aspects of the Mulberry program and student learning, with parents, teachers and the administration supporting children and one another. The rich community of Mulberry creates a sense of belonging and mutual respect across the generations. Furthermore, the collaborative process, which is prevalent throughout our school, develops students’ abilities to communicate comfortably with adults, creating people who function constructively in a system of democracy.
At Mulberry School, we value each member of our community, supporting one another in a life-long process of engaged learning.
