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.

Art time is big fun at the Marietta Johnson School, and sometimes all that fun just doesn't manage to stay on the table. We think this art project turned out pretty cute. What do you think?

Ms. Hannah set up an Amazon wishlist for the Early Life classroom, and we just love the out-of-this-world bandages that someone sent!
If you want to send the classroom a gift, you can find Ms. Hannah's list at: http://a.co/9ksWyRT.

FUN FACT FRIDAY: In the early 1900s, soap magnate Joseph Fels, made an $11,000 gift that underwrote much of the school's early growth. Fels was a great supporter of the single tax colony philosophy and radical education reform. In today's money, his gift would be worth over $300,000.

The rice table is one of our Early Life class's favorite sensory learning activities. Sensory learning activities engage all of a child's senses in exploratory learning that can increase spatial reasoning, fine motor skills, social skills, and even language skills. We also think it is lots of fun!

More photos from the school's field trip to the Marietta Johnson Museum. Our Early Life class, always interested in trying out what the older kids are doing, also took a photo on this great old tree, with teacher Hannah Schiller and wood working teacher Wayne Miller.
