Red Cedar School is an independent kindergarten through middle school, located north of the village of Bristol on the edge of the Green Mountains in Vermont.
The philosophy and practice of Red Cedar are based on these assumptions:
At Red Cedar students develop a love of learning within a community that values mutual respect and honors the voice of each individual. We support intellectual curiosity, critical thinking and communication skills through an interactive curriculum that emphasizes authentic and rigorous learning. We cultivate personal and social responsibility, and students grow to become active citizens of the local and world community.
Our small classes emphasize inquiry, writing, reading, discussion, and hands-on learning. Special programs in the arts, field research, travel study, wilderness trips, workshops, the outdoor classroom, and the school garden augment classroom learning.
