The Metropolitan Open School Experience
- Children and how they learn are respected.
- Children work at their own rates.
- Children strive for learning, not for grades.
- Children learn by doing.
- Curiosity is encouraged.
- Mixed ages complement learning. Mixed ages in the classroom provide younger students with a variety of tutors, while older students review and practice their skills, grow in responsibility, and gain healthier self-concepts.
- Choice develops self-reliance and motivation. Providing students with choices has been identified as a primary motivational tool that encourages learning. Journal article by Deborah Douglas; Roeper Review, Vol. 26, 2004.
