Our Mission and Values
Mulberry School inspires children to a life of learning and positive contribution to community. By weaving creativity and social learning into every day, we foster intellectual and social success for a lifetime.
By nurturing their natural mode of learning, Mulberry encourages children to try new skills, make guesses, and use their senses., and as such are constantly being taught that their natural curiosity opens fascinating doors to the world. Discovery is an ongoing process, as students constantly learn that their natural curiosity opens fascinating doors to the world. Because they learn experientially throughout their years at Mulberry, our students emerge as confident, curious learners
A true indicator of personal integrity is the manner in which one handles him/herself when mistakes or errors in judgment are made. Mulberry faculty and staff help students work through errors and conflicts while holding onto honest, humble attitudes and behaviors.
Mulberry offers a collaborative student experience, in the classroom, on the playground, and in interactions among children and adults alike. Children develop skills in working together as collaborative work styles are taught, modeled and practiced to complete tasks and solve problems.
The Mulberry community encompasses students, families, alumni, teachers and administration, creating the foundation upon which our school is based. Families are involved in many ways, and parent participation has been an integral part of our program from the beginning. Working together, we create a supportive community with a strong sense of belonging and mutual respect.
At Mulberry, our students are not passive receptacles of information, but drivers of their own learning. Our children learn by doing, through experience and active problem solving. Assignments require they reach for personal excellence and meaning. With aspects of emotional intelligence built into the curriculum, students not only study math, science, language arts and social studies, but are also encouraged to understand their own personal growth as learners.
