When people tour the school and ask learners if they have homework, typically the answer is no. But when they ask learners if they do work at home, the answer is “Of course!”
We don’t give much homework in the typical form, such as packets. Our “homework” is an extension of the projects learners are working on in class. It might look like research, or putting together a model, or refining an essay. Over time, there is more to be done after school hours, as is appropriate for each grade level.
However, we will always value carving out time for kids to spend time with their family, exercise, and generally have some downtime after their school day is done. That is a natural part of developing the whole child. Research supports this view. To learn more, please see the book list below.
