The students and teachers know one another intimately. They meet several times each week in their little advisory families and they know that they always have a teacher on their side. They go on about ten field trips each year and spend an additional two weeks on intersessions like backpacking photography political theatre and loads of other brilliant ideas. Some classes are arranged so fourteen or fewer students get to work with one teacher. Many times you will see students working on projects or fun activities and some teachers almost never use desks. From talking with other parents I've learned that several of the other students have learning challenges too but you would never know it. The special education teacher is brilliant and there's no stigma among the students about having a disability. The IEP kids aren't pulled out of class either unless they ask for one-on-one help. Otherwise the SPED and regular teachers just work with all the kids in class. My child went from FBB on the AIMS to meeting and exceeding. This school is compassionate creative fun challenging and works hard for social justice and environmentalism. We are so lucky to have gotten in.
