The Attic is a multi-age learning community. Please describe how your child interacts with peers of different ages. What benefits do you see for your child in a multi-age setting? *
The Attic has become a model of what is possible in education. Since The Attic’s founding in 1999, we have demonstrated what happens when the paradigm of education is shifted from one founded on fear and manipulation to one founded on love and trust. What happens is this: children thrive as life-long learners who truly know themselves. Our mission is not easy and takes the dedication and contribution of each and every family, teacher and staff of The Attic community. What questions do you have about this mission? How do you see your family contributing to The Attic's broader goal in education? *
I (or we) am interested and/or have experience in supporting The Attic in the following areas (please check all that apply): *
Has your child ever had or currently have an IEP, a 504 plan, and/or a neuropsychological evaluation? If yes, please include those documents with your application. The Attic keeps these documents and the information you share confidential. The Attic does not provide support for learning differences; however, we can serve a wide range of learners with varying abilities. Our purpose in reviewing these documents is to give you accurate information about whether and/or how we can serve your child.
Does your child have any diagnosed special needs (i.e. physiological, emotional, neurological, etc.)? Do you have any reasons/indications to believe or suspect that your child may have any undiagnosed special needs? *
Please describe any concerns about your child's behavior or emotional/academic needs that we should know about. *
