Greenshire Arts Consortium is creating a holistic middle school whose focus is to prepare students to live confident and inspired lives as responsible stewards of self, community and planet. The curriculum will promote academic excellence, creative self-expression and an opportunity for students to truly develop their whole being.
The school’s philosophy is inspired by Jiddu Krishnamurti who affirmed, “If the unity of life and the oneness of its purpose could be clearly taught to the young, how much brighter would be our hopes for the future!” Further inspiration for the school’s mission comes from the Dalai Lama who defines the student as “the good person, the student who is caring, compassionate, peaceful and tolerant. The student who sees all humanity as brothers and sisters. The student whose heart is as well-educated as their mind.”
Speaking about the goals of the school, community member and parent Brian Bogusz enthuses, “creating a community of like-minded individuals where students and teachers can relate to and respect each other will create the real change that the world so desperately needs now and in the future – change based on mutual trust and compassion.”
