Quotes from Parent Advocates

“We were new to Banded Peak School this past fall, and from the moment we stepped onto the property to register our children, we were welcomed with open arms. The staff (including the principal and assistant principal) went out of their way to make sure our two sons felt comfortable in their new environment, and by mid- September it felt like they’d always been students here. This is truly a place where “everybody knows your name” and it’s wonderful to be part of the community. My children love all the opportunities for outdoor learning; including learning how to set up a camp, what to do when you’re lost in the forest, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and planting a garden among others. They’ve been exposed to so many new things, and they come home begging to do them with the family. The fact that the teachers can (and do) take the children on hikes in the “Back 40” on any given day to enhance their studies - is just fantastic. They are learning in a way that they couldn’t in another school. We feel so fortunate to be able to send our children to this amazing school, with its dedicated teachers and staff, in this stunning outdoor setting. We love Banded Peak!

“There is palpable energy and enthusiasm emanating from the building. The teachers embrace new technology, challenge themselves with fresh projects, and are committed to lifelong learning. As the staff stretches and grows, they encourage our children, by their example, to reach higher too. We are confident in the skill of the teachers and comforted by their special efforts to connect with our children. Threading through their interactions with each student, is the message: We care about you. You matter. You can do this. The school’s profound connection to its natural setting is evident in the outdoor classroom, happy shrieks on the toboggan hill, garden projects, and homes for bats. The school reaches outward, actively meeting the community where it lives, through events like the Celebration of Learning, Fine Arts Day, and, during one wintery week, the leadership team joining the children on their frosty early morning bus rides. We are grateful that our children are safe, cared for, and challenged at Banded Peak.
