How Children Learn Organically

Each child enters the world programmed to learn in his own unique way according to his own unique timeline and style.

At the Organic School, children are grouped according to their age, individual learning style and readiness to learn.

We are a private school, founded in 1907 and still going strong! Learn more.


We just love this chair that Wayne Miller painted with his favorite character, Black Dog, for the Marietta Johnson School of Organic Education. It will be a perfect spot to sit and read his storybook Black Dog: The Reluctant Pirate to the kids.

Thanks to Martha Walker Miller for the great photo!
