WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY CHILD HAS A RIGHT TO THE BEST EDUCATION POSSIBLE
Acorn House believes that every child has a right to the best education possible. We aim to develop both intellect and character within a stimulating and challenging dual curriculum, nurturing the development of conscientious and responsible global citizens, as well as life-long learners.
Respect for each other and for the world we live in are central values at Acorn House. We teach and celebrate cultural diversity and individual differences. Through our project-based curriculum we study aspects of life and geographical features within cultures other than our own, through fund raising the students are encouraged to adopt an endangered animal and donate to charities supporting schools and children within the third world. We motivate our students to “develop the core competencies which allow them to engage with the world, and help make it a more just and sustainable world” (Oxfam).
Acorn House provides a stimulating dual curriculum program of study that engages each child through study, exploration and inquiry. We inspire our students to be critical and creative, innovative and enterprising, problem solvers and team workers, communicative and literate in multiple languages. We challenge our learners to strive for their individual potential and excellence, achieving the “knowledge, values, skills and understanding that they will require through their lifetimes and to apply them with confidence” (UNESCO, 1995).
