How Children Learn Organically
Each child enters the world programmed to learn in his own unique way according to his own unique timeline and style.
At the Organic School, children are grouped according to their age, individual learning style and readiness to learn.
We are a private school, founded in 1907 and still going strong! Learn more.
FUN FACT FRIDAY:
It is no surprise to learn that Marietta Johnson valued an open mind, but did you know that her idea of an open mind closely correlates with the scientific method?
She said, "The development of the open mind -- that is, the ability to wait for data -- is most important. The development of power to find out what is true and take it for authority -- rather than hastily taking truth on authority."

Everyone loves getting a little time in wood shop this year. Even the littlest students can learn about safety and sandpaper.

We just hated that our music teacher Ms. Kim was out with an injury for the start of the year, but our Early Life class knew just how to brighten her day.

Monday Marietta Memory time!
We love this great photo Victoria Scott Burleson shared of her son's class a few years back. She said, "My son loved his friends & all the outdoor time 😊"
There is a lot of press lately about the value of the focus Norwegian schools put on encouraging children to interact with the natural outdoors. We think Marietta would agree!
FUN FACT FRIDAY:
Marietta Johnson was not a native Alabamian. She was born in St. Paul Minnesota and move to Fairhope with her family in 1902, when the single tax colony was only eight years old. We sure are glad she did!

Look at this delicious scene from last week's Pizza Friday. With the help of Ms. Liz and one of our wonderful volunteers, the kids got to help prepare the dough and make their own pizzas. Yum!
