Our Vision

Our broadest vision is of a world that lives in peace, and a world community based on interdependence and respect for all life and all people. Our vision for our school is a Montessori school community of supportive parents, dedicated teachers and staff, and joyful learners.

Our Mission

Our mission is to nurture students’ character, compassion, respect and curiosity; to cultivate their means to learn, to invent, and participate fully and joyfully in life independently and collaboratively; to sustain a quality Montessori holistic classroom environment within a farm-based learning community; to encourage a deep sense of interdependence and responsibility as caring, global citizens and stewards of the earth.

Start of a Day

By Upper Elementary

I wake up
All my dreams are gone, but my thoughts surround me
The start
See the Sun rising over the mountain
As the Sun rises we sing for the Sun is order. We welcome the Sun.
The Sun rises Mmmmmm Sun rises Mmmmm…
Sun goes up Moon goes down, round and round.
Watching the sunrise fade into blue sky
Hear the birds singing a song to the morning
Listen to radio
Watch fish
Stay in bed until it’s time to eat. Stay face down in bed.
Read books until I put on my pajamas.
Play with brother.
My ritual is to try to get the socks away from my dog because he try to eat them.
Apple blossoms
Feel the mist on my face as I go outside
Bound along after my dog in the morning dew.
Dance with leaves.

The students wrote this together inspired by the book The Way to Start a Day by Byrd Baylor.
We start our day with this poem.

The Garden Committee

Non-Profit Status!

We are now a federally recognized 501 c3 non-profit organization! This means we are exempt from most federal and state taxes and can receive tax-deductible donations.

SRM would like to recognize Autumn Feral and Aaron Weiss for their ongoing attention to the non-profit application process. It was a path covered with bureaucratic hoops and both Autumn and Aaron graciously and intelligently maneuvered our organization through them. Excellent work!

We do not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, creed, or national origin, including but not exclusive of non-discriminatory admissions of students and members, and equal use of all facilities.
