SEEDING EDUCATION


Our educational philosophy is student-centered and draws inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach, which “promotes children’s education through the development of all their languages: expressive, communicative, symbolic, cognitive, ethical, metaphorical, logical, imaginative and relational.”

Our curriculum is project-based, integrated and emergent.

170 Students pre-K to 4th grade
10 Tutorial high school students
12 Full time teachers
7:1 to 11:1: Student Teacher Ratio or overall average 9.5:1
Other Vital Services:  School Meals, School Supplies, Uniforms & Health Care, Field Trips


PROJECT BASED

Projects are the “units” of the Seeds curriculum, are in-depth investigations of concepts, ideas, and interests that are generated by students and teachers; projects allow students to learn by doing.

INTEGRATED

An integrated curriculum cuts across subject matter lines, reflecting the world as connected and interactive, encouraging holistic teaching and learning, and preparing students to face real-world challenges.

EMERGENT

The project-based and integrated model allows new ideas, questions and challenges to grow naturally as a result of student and teacher questions and interests.

THE DREAM SCHOOL CAMPAIGN

The Dream School Campaign launched in October, 2014 to raise $2.2 Million to fund the creation of an Ethiopian Academy and community center to serve up to 600 students, their families, and the Adama community. It will meet the most rigorous international academic standards and prepare our students to succeed in high school, college, and beyond.
