The Joan Rubin School:
A vision for a new school in Greater Boston
Thank you for your overwhelming response to our first information session! Feel free to attend our upcoming session if you were unable to attend the first.
This event will be an information session describing our future school and
providing background on democratic learning models. The school founders will speak briefly, followed by a Q&A style discussion.
Wednesday, October 9th, 2013 at 6:30pm
Somerville Central Library Auditorium, 79 Highland Ave.
Unique features of this school will include:
-Dedication to children's natural development
-Diversity among student body
-Healthy and supportive community
-Accessible by public transportation
Schools around the world have used these principles of
student-initiated learning and democratic governance. They have been
correlated with successful, happy, and self-aware graduates.
We want to hear from you!
We are actively seeking energetic people to help in the work of
founding The Joan Rubin School. We are eager to hear the voices of
parents interested in this type of education for their children.
Please join us on October 9th!
