Who We Are

Vision

We envision a world where education inspires life-long learning and helps children grow into their fullest potential.

Mission Statement

Living Wisdom School provides children with a balanced education that supports the development of their hearts and minds, and tools to discover who they are and how to face life’s challenges with joy.

Core Values

Living Wisdom School (LWS) is guided by Education for Life (EFL), a philosophy of holistic education that emphasizes experiential learning, spiritual development, and practical skills for living. EFL prepares children to use life’s diverse challenges to discover ever-deeper levels of purpose, meaning, and happiness. We create a culture of kindness and compassion with respect toward individual differences, which allows for joyful, creative, confident learners.

Central to our community are these core values:

  • Kindness and joy
  • Heart-centered communication
  • Curiosity and wonder
  • Solution-oriented thinking
  • Cultivating inner awareness
  • Cooperation and service

A Holistic View

Living Wisdom School provides students with a balanced education focusing on the body, feeling, will, and intellect, encouraging ever-deeper levels of purpose and happiness.  We see that these four areas, what we refer to as the “tools of maturity”, are the foundation of successful, happy lives.

The Tools of Maturity:

  • the physical body
  • the heart’s feelings
  • dynamic will power
  • the intellect

Student-Centered for Success

At our school, the academic needs and aspirations of each student are recognized and addressed, while developing life-skills such as practicing peace, getting along with others, nurturing even-mindedness, and cultivating courage. Our student-centered system helps children expand beyond themselves to include others, and through this greater awareness to find joy in learning and growth.

EFL looks at each child’s potential to grow and learn and endeavors to bring out their natural curiosity, creativity, and strengths. The success of our individualized learning process and character building is evident in the graduates of the program. With strength in self knowledge, responsibility and creative solutions, they are more balanced, compassionate and clear about who they are and how they can serve in the world, bringing fresh solutions to local and global issues.
