Students at The Tutorial School

The Tutorial School is an educational community that includes students, staff, and parents joining together for what we believe to be among the most basic and fundamental of human activities: the pursuit of self-knowledge and the exploration, discovery, and understanding of life and the universe in all its multifarious aspects.

What Makes Us Different

CONSTRUCTIVIST
LEARNING

Every student is a unique individual discovering his or her own learning style. Learning is an active, social process directed by the student, and built upon by his or her strengths and interests. Knowledge is what we construct for ourselves as we learn. An emotionally safe learning environment is critical to this process.

TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP

Within a Culture of Mentorship, staff members model self motivation and authenticity. Students learn to take charge of their lives.

IMMERSION
DEMOCRACY

Students experience, first hand, participation in real decision making that affects their lives. The school is run democratically through the practice of self government.
