Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

Remembrance Day

Today is the 67th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt which led to the imprisonment of 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry during World War II.

The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program hosts three distinguished writers to talk about their recent titles highlighting the Japanese American experience. The books they discuss are supposed to be excellent. You can read more about them here.

Other good teen reads on this topic include: Farewell To Manzanar: A True Story of Japanese American Experience During and After World War II Internment and Weedflower.
