Classes are capped at 12 students. However, our classes are multi age which allows a larger range of progression in all aspects of both social emotional and academic studies while still maintaining the small class size.
Every student attends art, music and spanish classes every week. And within their home class students study special areas of interest such as fiber arts: which includes knitting and sewing. We also teach and incorporate cooking and outdoor skills: students learn to whittle and cook over open fires, and build shelters. They also learn about basic first aid.
Our students and families love to participate in the Junior Instructional Ski Program. Our students ski at Bromley on Fridays. So during the winter students can be picked up from school starting at 11:30 on Fridays to head up to the mountain.
At Red Fox we explicitly teach kindness and respect. Our students learn to support one another whole-heartedly, every day. We also expect our families to regularly engage in and actively support our school community. This includes hosting school events, chaperoning field trips, volunteering in our classrooms, and more.
Classes start at 8:30 am and our day ends at 3pm Monday thru Thursday. Students can arrive at school starting at 8am. Fridays are typically used for projects, outdoor education and field trips. Students are dismissed at 12:30pm every Friday.
At this time we do not offer after school programs. But we look forward to expanding our student opportunities once we have settled into our new home this upcoming school year.
Four days a year we have community Saturday school. Family Campout and the Fall Harvest Festival are held in the fall. Family Snow Day is in the winter and finally Spring Zephyr Festival is in the spring. Beyond the intrinsic value of each day, they are days designed to allow parents to experience some of our school activities.
Yes, as of January 2021, students must be vaccinated unless there is a medical exemption.
