A Compassionate, Supportive Environment
This mode of learning looks very different from other school models. Children, young adults, and adults all share the same comfortable space, pursuing their activities individually and in groups. Through the back doors is our small back yard, beyond which is our expansive 19 acre extended campus, Patterson Park.
Participatory Democracy Among Equals
By participating in a working democracy, students develop the ability to make clear, logical arguments and learn how to deal with complex, ethical issues.
Everyone in the community has an equal vote on rules, budgeting, staff elections, and all other facets of running the school. Students develop the ability to make clear, logical arguments and learn how to deal with complex, ethical issues. Most of these duties and meetings are voluntary, but there is one democratic meeting–the Judicial Committee–that everyone is routinely required to attend.
At the heart of our method are the beliefs that all interests and work have equal value and that children, like all people, learn best when focusing on what interests them. Within the bounds of the school rules, students are free to pursue any activity they choose.
Clearview welcomes self-directed learners ages 5-18. Our school meets in rented church space adjacent to 19-acre Patterson Park. On campus, we also have access to a commercial kitchen on campus for staff and student use.
Our campus was closed through the worst of the pandemic, but we settled on a plan to return to school safely starting with the 2021-2022 school year, which included capped enrollment. See our most up to date campus policies and please contact us to find out if there is space available.
The Clearview Sudbury School does not discriminate for admissions or employment based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, color, religion, disability, national origin or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, employment policies, financial aid, and any other administered programs and activities.
