Philosophy of Learning: Kimmel Farm, in collaboration with our families and community, will prepare students for their future by implementing Problem Based Learning and authentic, real-world experiences. By providing them with rigorous and relevant academic opportunities, we ensure that students will excel as critical and creative thinkers while becoming responsible citizens who will thrive in a changing world.
o All students are capable of learning in a safe, positive, and challenging environment that values diversity and fosters collaboration.
o All children come with their own individual gifts, talents, natural curiosity, and desire to learn.
o Alternative points of view foster communication and instill compassion for others.
o Educators, with a high standard of excellence, are the key facilitators in this state-of-the-art environment.
o Learning is an active, on-going process where students are engaged in a wide variety of relevant, independent, creative, cooperative, minds-on, hands-on experiences.
o Education is the responsibility of students, school, family, and community.
