Community

Beyond a day school we are a school community. The families of our students are involved in the growth and development of Ak Lu’um and working as a team is vital. The links between home and school need to be strong and continuously reinvigorated. We value the opportunity to use consensus in the adult realm wherever possible. The Faculty works collaboratively and makes decisions practicing a consensus format, as do the Parent Committees. Each person’s contribution is valued and considered because we believe consensus decision-making leads to outcomes that are greater than the sum of the contributions.

In our community we are striving to uphold these values:

  • Clear conscious thinking

  • Rhythm and Social harmony

  • Artistic sense

  • A love of learning

  • Resourcefulness

  • Self-confidence and Independence

  • Ability to solve problems

  • Resilience

  • Self-discipline

  • Environmental awareness

  • Initiative

” Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able, out of themselves, to impart purpose and direction to their lives”
