Dear Friends of Fiddlehead School ~
We are getting ready to host our third lottery as a Public Charter School! (Wednesday, March 31st at noon). Our first two years have been absolutely amazing! I could not be more proud of the community and culture that we have begun to develop. With 81 children from 17 districts, we are quickly defining who we are, our passion and vision for the future.
In the academic school year of 2015-2016, we will be offering grades pre-k through 4th grade – with expansion the following year to 5th grade. Our classrooms are small (averaging 17 students) and we have an excellent teacher to child ratio (about 1:8).
What is most important for you to know about us is that we are a community of learners. Our approach is unique – inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy. We use assessments to further children’s learning as we observe, document and reflect on their ideas and interests.
If your child thrives in a fluidly scheduled environment where students learn from each other, then Fiddlehead School of Arts & Sciences is the right fit! I highly encourage you to attend one of our Open House evenings to see if our school is a right fit for you and your child.
Please call our office for any additional questions. I look forward to seeing you at one of our Open Houses!
All my best,
Jacinda Cotton-Castro, Learning Leader & Executive Director
