- Navigators & Beacons -


Our Salt Box School comprises two groups: The Beacons is a group of students who attend school five days a week and The Navigators is a group consisting of students who attend school on varied days. The Beacons and the Navigators each form a cohesive learning group though they also work together on projects as larger group. In the Salt Box School, we encourage our students to become stable, kind, confident individual critical thinkers while we also help them to become part of our larger school community by learning to lead throughout the school year!

  • Actively engage in center-based, integrated learning designed by professional educators

My inquisitive daughters are bright, curious, engaging, learners, musicians, artists, and thinkers. Their five early years at The Family School has set each of them up for success in every area of their lives. They have made treasured friends that will last their lifetime. I am well beyond grateful.
