MISSION & VALUES
Our Mission Begins With a Love of Learning
To offer a community where students love learning, teachers love teaching, and families thrive.
Our Core Values
We take care of the whole child
providing an academically rigorous program in a nurturing and supportive environment.
We cultivate creativity and critical thinking
through our thematically-integrated, hands-on curriculum.
We foster teacher engagement
by maintaining a low student-teacher ratio in a culture of support and collaboration that values teacher autonomy.
We preserve life balance
We value community,
emphasizing kindness and respect with one another while learning to understand our responsibility as global citizens in a diverse world.
The AHB mission is all about balance. We believe education is a shared responsibility. We want each member of our community to feel enthusiasm for the learning process, ownership over the educational journey, and a deep connection to our school. By supporting one another, we help our students find success.
Our Mission In Action
How a Micro School Becomes a Community
Students + Teachers + Families
Our mission reflects one of the unique balancing acts that make AHB so magical. It is a community that, while coming together under the shared vision of doing right by the students, strives to value ALL our community stakeholders: students, teachers and families. It’s one more way to teach our students that they are part of something bigger than themselves!
By honoring all parts of the system, we build a better school. Our campus is filled not only with happy kids, but also teachers excited to be learning alongside their students who smile and laugh their way through the days, and families who consider the school community a place of belonging for themselves as well as their children. At AHB, we take care of each other!
This interconnectedness is the heart of our community: students who love learning, teachers who love teaching, and families who thrive. At AHB, we are all part of the learning journey.
