The curriculum or "plan" for learning at Blue Mountain School is unique in that it is not just a list of subjects taught, or specific skills the learner is working to master. While our curriculum does reflect subject knowledge, skills, and proficiencies which meet national standards (e.g., the standards developed by the National Councils for Teachers of English, Math, Science, and Social Studies), content in each classroom is typically developed around thematic units or projects and reflects a commitment to incorporating the unique children who are part of that classroom in the process of constructing and exploring knowledge within the framework of their own experiences. Also included in our curriculum are other vital parts of an holistic education: Social-Emotional Learning skills and proficiencies, mindfulness skills, and enrichment classes which include the arts, movement, contemplative practices, service learning, and physical activity.
