Grade 8 Capstones
Before our 8th graders graduate and take on the world, they take on unique capstone experiences that encapsulate all they have learned at Green Acres: how to be of service to others, how to be academically successful, and, of course, how to be joyful throughout it all.
Green Acres' philosophy bred a curriculum that gave me the freedom to explore and find my interests, instead of one that was simply interested in evaluating my intelligence or ability to regurgitate information. So I left Green Acres having absorbed the principle that education isn't about finding or assessing your limits, but about expanding your horizons.
