Important Q&A

    What differentiates your school from all others?
    Our school focuses on self-care and community, building a sense of human connection in an age where we are all so preoccupied with our electronic devices. Our self-discovery program fosters personal reflection, artistic expression, communication, collaboration, and fitness, in the belief that the healthier and happier we are the better we are going to learn. Our trade-marked three part curriculum design supports academic and social emotional development, while also allowing students to perform, exhibit their knowledge and serve their community.

    Where do you see your school in 5 years, what will be different?
    Oneness-Family School is currently expanding its world languages program to give our students greater choices and opportunities to learn about other cultures and to build a deeper understanding of the ways in which we are all interconnected. We will also be expanding our dramatic arts program to feature an annual spring show each year including students from across all of our grades.

    Whats one myth about your school thats just not true?
    Some parents mistakenly think that Oneness-Family School is a "hippy school" where everyone is walking around in Birkenstock sandals and munching on granola and grilled tofu. Oneness-Family School's founder Andrew Kutt sites as his heroes Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. and has always been inspired by their idealism in building the school into a center of international peace and harmony, that being said, Oneness-Family School takes great pride in the high standard of its academic program, fostering key skills for success in our global society, including critical thinking, information literacy, collaboration, creativity, and emotional intelligence.

  1. My daughter has thrived at this school, which she has attended grades 1-3. Academically, she excels (geometry in third grade! And reading at a level far above her grade level), yet what impresses me most are the social skills she has learned – she is confident, articulate, empathetic, and loves learning. The teachers are dedicated, kind, intelligent, and encourage communication between themselves and the parents.
    My 4 year old started this year and, almost immediately, I saw the same love of learning and creativity building in her.
    My advice- schedule a tour, observe the happy kids who are actively and happily engaged in their learning and the teachers who guide them with love and kindness. And, then, enroll your kids! It truly is a special school which brings out the best in every child.
