Over a twelve-year curriculum, students learn math, literature, history, science and a variety of arts and hands-on skills.
Elementary students paint, knit, weave, and sculpt. Older children make patterns, books, pottery and sculpt in stone. Everyone learns music: First, they play the flute, some learn stringed instruments, and others join the choir.
Students play non-competitive games and learn to dance. They do organic farming and learn two foreign languages.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
