Become Who You Are!

For over a century these words have expressed the essential challenge that our school invites its students to take on. And because each student is different, this challenge assumes a new form for every one of them.

A belief in the utter uniqueness of each student forms the core of the Ecole’s philosophy of education. We trust in and respect our students in all their diversity, and we listen to and value their voices. We foster a culture of individuation and negotiation, a dynamic middle way between conformity and rebellion. Ecole students co-construct their school experience, reflect on their successes and struggles, and find their own particular niches in a cohesive and lively community. Here they are able to grow and express their uniqueness, knowing all the while that they are a necessary and valued part of the whole. In such an environment they develop confidence in their strengths and aptitudes, a realistic appraisal of their weaknesses and stumbling blocks, and an intrinsic sense of responsibility and compassion. When creative risk is encouraged, education becomes an adventure.
