Our Goals

Our Goals

We will begin small as all schools do. This wonderful early time will be an experience of intimacy and coming together as a community. Our growth will be planned and intentional with new teachers arriving regularly as new students are welcomed into the school. We will all be a part of that welcoming experience where warmth and joy lead the way to connection and a sense of being at home at school. Class meet-ups, project presentation nights and community-wide events are always the norm at JoSoCoR. This is even more pronounced while the school is still young. The first families will co-create the school culture along with the students and faculty. It is truly a magical time in the life of a school.
