The Vashon Green School is a place-based multi-age learning community located on 7 acres of farm and woodlands, on Vashon’s Westside. We offer a hands-on, hearts-on embodied curriculum rooted in practices that promote social intelligence and connection to the natural world. Our curriculum seeks to provide children with tools and support for living a full, balanced and creative life by giving equal value to each of the four windows of knowing: feeling, imagining, sensing and thinking. Mentors honor each child’s unique gifts and learning styles, supported by our small mentor-student ratio. VGS children, mentors and families journey together to create a learning community rooted in compassion, connection and gratitude.

VASHON GREEN SCHOOL

When you enroll your child in VASHON GREEN SCHOOL you are committing to make the payments according to the Payment Plan that you designate below.  If you withdraw your child, for any reason, before the school year ends you are still obligated to pay the full tuition. There will be no reduction of payments due to sickness, family vacations, or any other reason.

Families who wish to leave VASHON GREEN SCHOOL before the end of their contract are required to present their reason in writing. They must also attend a conference with VASHON GREEN SCHOOL mentors to discuss their reasons and allow instructors to address any outstanding issues. VASHON GREEN SCHOOL staff and families commit to working through conflicts that arise.

As a parent/guardian to a child(ren) in VASHON GREEN SCHOOL, you also become an important member and role model in this learning community.  You play a vital role in creating the container within which the children of VASHON GREEN SCHOOL thrive and grow.  There are a myriad of ways that parents/guardians do this, above and beyond what is defined here.  Parents are strongly encouraged to sign-up for a role in some of these essential VASHON GREEN SCHOOL practices/activities:

1.     Seasonal Celebrations: Deeply rooted in the natural cycles, these gatherings nurture our connection to each other and the environment that sustains us. 

2.     Annual Work Party: An opportunity for the whole family to join with the rhythms of the land on which your child learns and grows. Time to strengthen connection to this place and the other families of VGS.

3.     Field Trips/Events: Children thrive on seeing the family members of their friends, sharing time together and enjoying each other.  Field Trips, Camp-outs and the Year End Ceremony are another way we do this.

4.     Fundraising: A core element in the healthy functioning of this community. All families are expected to participate in the VASHON GREEN SCHOOL Fundraising efforts.

5.     Reading Lab and Hands on Activities: An opportunity to support students learning during the school day.
