Primary School

Progressive education is a legacy of thoughtful practice recognizing that students learn best in real-life activities with other people. In the K–5 primary grades, thematic studies, multi-age classrooms and mentor-apprentice relationships permeate the environment in both social venues and academic inquiry. We believe children are capable of complicated thinking, have their own wonderings and are marvelously prepared to focus on the complex and profound. Marylhurst children learn though hands-on experiences that support and respond to their individual level of growth in conjunction with the needs of the class as a whole.
