The school’s teachings will be based upon techniques developed by Italian educator Maria Montessori, which emphasizes building self-esteem and compassion through meditation and yoga, while simultaneously focusing on a traditional academic curriculum.

“Optimally, we’ll be cooking food that we grow in season. We’ll have healthy, plant-based meals that are organic and amazing.”
The school will also encourage children to interact with rescued animals at the nearby Jubilee Animal Sanctuary—which currently houses rescued horses but plans to expand to include farmed animals such as cows, goats, and pigs.
