Community & Citizenship

Micro School. Big Heart.

SMS students are nurtured to be positive, contributing members of the community and are provided with a strong foundation to become informed, respectful global citizens, and resilient when faced with opportunities and challenges. Through service learning and community based projects, SMS students build interpersonal skills for success in a variety of social contexts. Incorporating the use of mindfulness and character education, we teach self-awareness, empathy and respect for self and others. Every student has a voice at SMS and is a valued member of our community, always accepted for who they are, and appreciated for their unique, individual contributions to our school. At SMS, our culture IS community; our welcoming and supportive environment provides a safe place for students to be challenged so they can learn, grow and thrive.
