Conservatory Prep School’s holistic approach to education brings curiosity and joy back to learning where “typical” schools often fall short. Using the educational philosophy of Edluministic Learning, influenced by Waldorf, Montessori, Dewey and Steiner, students follow their passions and use them to guide their studies.
Edluministic Learning is problem-based. Students are presented with an issue and use critical thinking, research and analysis to come up with solutions which they present through writing and artistic expression, including short plays, paintings, cooking, producing songs or shooting films. Students practice public speaking skills and collaboration. Instead of rote memorization and tests, they are assessed by their participation in class and the projects they create to demonstrate mastery of concepts.
Small classes allow for individualized lessons. Teachers get to know how each student learns best and to identify and master the skills they need to make the most of their education. SAT and ACT prep classes ensure students are prepared for college admissions and beyond. Conservatory Prep’s small size helps foster bonds between the students, creating a close-knit community, teaching life skills such as cooperation, compromise and the value of community.
