Atlas School is a traditional school with a traditional curriculum and traditional values.
We believe, in the truest sense, in the whole child philosophy — the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of the child — in preschool, elementary, and middle school.We believe:
At Atlas, we will use a teacher-directed, parent-supported teaching approach, employing hands-on, interdisciplinary lessons.
We also place strong emphasis on real-life learning - reading, cooking, cleaning, gardening, shopping, playing, traveling, working, etc., with the family.
Our preschool and elementary are no-tech schools. We believe that today's children receive too much screen time and need more face-to-face time with their teachers and classmates.
We believe in protecting children's innocence. We do not agree with the hypersexualization that is so common in today's culture. We discourage children's use of TV and the internet because of its inappropriate content.
We teach abstinence until marriage in our fifth grade human development class and our eighth grade health class.
