Teaching and Instruction

Goleta Family School is a public alternative to the traditional public school setting for children in kindergarten through grade six. Our multiage program provides an educational environment in which students can learn at their own pace in a non-competitive atmosphere. Goleta Family School strives to provide a challenging, stimulating program that leads children to feel valued and teaches them to value others. We place a high priority on intrinsic motivation, seeking to cultivate a love of learning for its own sake. While we use the Common Core Academic Standards, we are free to use whatever curriculum, pacing, and teaching methods best suit our students. Each of our teachers also brings their own personality and interests into the classroom to share with their students.
