Join A Micro School Built on Balance

Who Thrives at AHB

AHB students are curious and creative, deep-thinking and kind. They care for their friends, their family, and their world. They may be looking for challenge, flexibility, or belonging. As the AHB learning journey is a partnership, family support is essential. Those who do best at our micro school can adapt to the flow of project-based learning and enjoy working alongside friends.

How to Join AHB Community School

Visit Us for a Tour

Our Associate Director offers weekly info sessions. You will learn more about AHB Community School’s program, view classrooms, and have ample opportunities to ask questions. Come see why our students love learning! Schedule a tour here.

Meet with Our Associate Director

Our Associate Director will reach out to schedule a time. We recommend both parents attend. This is an opportunity to get to know one another — ask questions about our school and have a conversation about your child and family. In the elementary years, we recommend this be an adult-only conversation. Middle school students are welcome to join at the parent’s discretion.

Bring Your Student to Visit

During this visit, your child gets to know our school and the teachers get to know your child. We look for a good fit socially, by watching students interact with peers, and academically, through low-pressure assessments. Younger students spend two hours at the school while older students spend one to two days.


There are only 6 spots left for the 2024-25 school year, spanning kindergarten and select grades. Our final group tour is next week.

Seeing is Believing

Considering typical teaching methods, it may be hard to believe children can enjoy school and actually learn. Take a tour of AHB and you might see a group of animated kindergartens playing a math game or middle schoolers engaged in a lively discussion about affirmative action. When you see the love of learning and balance of SEL and academics, you’ll understand how AHB helps students thrive.
