My daughter needed a warm environment that would nurture her tremendous spirit, creativity, and voice. I believe her education to be attended when she is a participant in it. Da Vinci allows her to succeed in her areas of interest by providing an inclusive and arts integrated curriculum. When confronted, within a choice of public alternative schools, between a social justice focus and an inspired-by-Waldorf, sustainable environmental focus, I decided that da Vinci is more successful in developing social responsibility by highlighting the authentic connections between all things and by respectfully attending diverse expressions. Children who are free to communicate uniquely the beauty they witness in the world are happy, caring people.
