About Rainbow Community SchoolFind out what sets our school apart
Rainbow Community School is proud to offer a private, independent and alternative educational program for preschool through middle school-aged children that draws from the best in current educational thinking and holistic models of child development. We are recognized nationally as a leader in contemplative and mindfulness education.
Traditional educational models rely heavily on standardized testing and rote memorization, often dampening children’s natural love for learning. Our child-centered curriculum is designed to inspire curiosity through experiential thematic units of study. We use assessment rubrics and goal setting to encourage children to reflect on and take responsibility for shaping their own educational journey.
We invite you to explore our program further by reviewing our mission and vision statements, our historical summary, grade-specific program overviews, special program features, teacher biographies and testimonials.
