GUIDING CURIOUS MINDS DOWN UNIQUE PATHS

Why choose between a play-based model and traditional learning model, when your child can have both?

At Fitzgerald Community School, your child will get the best of both worlds with a nature-based pre-K – 5th grade education that combines child-centered learning and curriculum benchmarks. 

Each student gets a personalized education plan based on a blend of free play, project-based learning, and foundational learning that’s designed to meet them exactly where they are at.

Join our community of supportive, accepting, and encouraging families that celebrates the unique personalities and needs of each child. 

We love our FCS families and can’t wait to meet your child.

OUR COMMUNITY, MY EDUCATION.


Your child can cultivate their creativity while still learning a similar curriculum as the public school system, to become well-rounded and confident students that are fully prepared when they transition to middle school. 

Children engage in 2-3 hours of outdoor learning every day.

While traditional schools emphasize a model filled with desks and electronics, our nature-based education is designed to stimulate all the senses and activate both the body and the mind. Your child will spend an average of 3 hours a day outside, playing and learning in fresh air. Our indoor classrooms are filled with active seating and sensory-rich natural materials such as wooden toys, and  calming colors that nurtures every child’s mind, body and spirit.  

Who your child is influences the way we teach.

We’ve spent years perfecting a blend of free play, project based learning, and foundational learning to give your child a personalized educational experience that’s designed to let everyone flourish. Our teachers are specially trained to create a personalized learning plan for each student to meet them exactly where they are at.

Our smaller class size ratio of 1-8 students give your child the freedom to explore in a way that naturally complements their individual learning style.  The mixed-age groups foster the development of social skills and leadership in a safe environment.

Engaging in science and cultural projects that connect to the community and apply to real life settings.

Your child can follow their curiosity and cultivate their creativity, while still learning a similar curriculum as the public school system, to become well-rounded and confident students that are fully prepared when they transition to middle school.
