Emerald Mountain School
WE CREATE PASSIONATE LEARNERS
Education at Emerald Mountain School follows a developmental approach that strives to educate the whole student in a positive and constructive environment. The academic program is designed to promote intellectual growth, creativity, confidence, and leadership through an understanding of cultural differences throughout the world and responsibility within the school community.
- We inspire confidence and a passion for learning through a curriculum that stresses academics, personal accountability, experiential and outdoor education, and responsible local and global citizenship.
- Our vision is to be the school that best prepares students for future challenges and opportunities.
Independent schools nurture intellectual curiosity, stimulate personal growth, encourage critical thinking, and promote a lifelong love of learning.
Independent school instructors usually teach in their areas of expertise. They strive to develop a full understanding of each student’s learning style, interests, and motivation.
In addition to academics, independent schools also nurture students’ personal and social growth and civic conscience.
Independent schools promote regular communication among students, parents, and teachers to ensure everyone is working toward the same goals.
