Welcome to Mountain Phoenix Community School!
Our mission is to provide an arts-based, developmentally appropriate education that nurtures the whole child: Head, Heart and Hand.
We are a Jefferson County public charter school offering an educational program inspired by the methods of Waldorf education to K-8 students. Our curriculum is comprehensive in scope and artistic in nature. Its academic components are aligned to state standards and framed within an artistic, creative and imaginative context. Mountain Phoenix Community School is dedicated to preparing students for life through a curriculum rich in background knowledge, development of the imagination that will lead to higher level thinking, active learning and meaningful, integrated projects and experiential approaches, and mastery of skills in alignment with core standards.
- An Artistic Approach to Education. Well-developed programs in Eurythmy, music/orchestra, environmental stewardship, drama, and handwork enliven the academic curriculum and support deep understanding and academic success.
- A Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum and Learning Environment. We recognize the stages of child development and foster academic growth in an supportive environment that values each child’s learning style and level. MPCS is dedicated to making our students successful by understanding their personal rhythm and supporting the unique unfolding of their emotional and social intelligences.
- A Waldorf-Inspired Education at a Free, Public Charter School. Our educational program is available to families dedicated to a Waldorf-Inspired education for their children. Active parent involvement is an integral part of our thriving learning community. Parents are encouraged to participate in a variety of ways from joining ongoing activities to school governance.
- A Homeschool Enrichment Program offering classes on campus every Tuesday, a science day, and/or selected enrichment activities such as P.E., art, music, orchestra, Eurythmy, Field Trips or Spanish. Homeschool Families are welcomed and encouraged to participate in our Community Festivals, as well. Please refer to HolisticHomeschoolEnrichment.com for more information.
We are currently enrolling students for the 2012-13 school year.
Come discover how an artistic approach to education awakens the imagination and brings wholeness and vitality to the classroom!
