WELCOME!

Our School Mission

The Alice Birney School Mission is to receive every child with open eyes, open arms, and an open heart, recognizing that each one brings unique qualities, gifts, and talents that can be fully realized when the essence of the education offered is imbued with gratitude for sacred learning, love for the endeavor, and respect for the child’s autonomy and freedom. Throughout their journey, Alice Birney students are prepared to do their best and most beautiful work in all subject areas so they may apply to the high school of their choice. By 8th grade promotion, students are expected to be proficient in core academic areas as well as visual and performing arts as demonstrated in their culminating 8th grade projects. Alice Birney students will be prepared and motivated to continue as lifelong learners.

 

Alice Birney was the subject of a study by the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education: Growing a Waldorf-Inspired Approach in a Public School District (PDF) By Diane Friedlaender, Kyle Beckham, Xinhua Zheng, and Linda Darling-Hammond.
