Sudbury Valley School's Full Profile



Sudbury Valley School says

At Sudbury Valley School, students from preschool through high school age explore the world freely, at their own pace and in their own unique ways. They learn to think for themselves, and learn to use information age tools to unearth the knowledge they need from multiple sources. They develop the ability to make clear logical arguments, and deal with complex ethical issues. Through self-initiated activities, they pick up the basics; as they direct their lives, they take responsibility for outcomes, set priorities, allocate resources, and work with others in a vibrant community. Trust and respect are the keys to the school's success. Students enjoy total intellectual freedom, and unfettered interaction with other students and adults. Through being responsible for themselves and for the school's operation, they gain the internal resources needed to lead effective lives.


Sudbury Valley School received a Noodle Innovative School Award in 2015.

Every student and staff member has an equal vote in managing the School. The weekly School Meeting determines rules of behavior, use of facilities, expenditures, and staff hiring, and delegates specific routines for running the School to various agents.
