What is a Democratic School

Democratic schools are best described as a school that involves students in the decision-making process and all aspects that affect what and how they learn. As a democratic school, our students participate in every aspect of running the school. 

Students participate in curriculum choices, topics studied, fundraising efforts, school meetings and building cleanup. Our students work hard on building peer relationships and encouraging each other’s strengths to ensure each student’s education is full and rewarding. 

Aspire students meet each Friday to discuss school business and conflict resolution etc… Aspire committees meet throughout the week. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to participate in the weekly meeting.
