HOW WE LEARN
Instead of traditional grade levels, students at Verdi EcoSchool join mixed-age Discovery Levels, the academic groupings that determine the depth of exploration in each required subject. Students move through discovery of academic content along a mastery scale and spend time learning in small groups with children who are generally closer in age and development. Students spend 2-3 years in a Discovery Level gaining the skills necessary to move to the next level. The age ranges offered below are just a guide as we recognize that each child develops uniquely as an individual.
