His parents, Danny and Tracey. His defensive game needs some fine tuning because he's so offensive-minded." Esposto is a major cog in. Paul was born in Sudbury on April 5, to parents Norah and John Sommers ( both predeceased). Some of It is said that we meet Gifted Spirits in our lives. Below is a collection of FAQs that we have accumulated over years of talking with parents who were new to the Sudbury model of education. We encourage you.
However, in this post-industrial, or information, age, children know that traditional schooling is a waste of time, so more and more of them are tuning out. Our community provides your child with the time and space to get back in touch with their own natural desire to learn without being told to do so. What if my child spends all day on the computer?
It is quite possible that your child will spend all day on the computer. With all of the negative media attention surrounding screen time, it is not surprising that many parents are concerned about this.
At Sunset Sudbury, we recognize that computers are the most important tools of modern society and that there are many advantages to playing with them.
Furthermore, computers and gaming are very social activities in our community in which students engage with each other, learn from each other, and constantly problem-solve together. Testing How will I know my child is learning if he or she is not being tested? Nothing could be more simple, or more difficult. Difficult because to trust children we must first learn to trust ourselves, and most of us were taught as children that we could not be trusted. You must trust that they will learn what they need to in their own way and in their own time.
Once you shed the notion that real learning can be measured, you will begin to see your child in a different light and trust your own instincts about whether or not they are growing. How does your program measure growth or evaluate progress? We enjoy celebrating successes, but we do not compare students nor assume to know what is best for them.
Instead, we encourage students to trust their own assessment of themselves and of their efforts in meeting personal goals and challenges. This is the wildest fallacy in the world.
The truth is that most children value the sense of order that exists in our community due in large part to our student-led justice system. Everyone gets the message that freedom does not mean license and that with freedom comes an enormous responsibility. What are the rules and what happens if someone breaks them? Our law book contains all the rules of the community, as well as procedures for handling rule infractions. The rules are decided democratically by students and staff as the need for them arises.
In general, the rules provide for the protection of individual rights while maintaining an atmosphere of safety and respect.
Once per day, a student-led judicial committee gathers to investigate all complaints and determines sentences as needed. Our experience is that students find the system to be the fairest way of handling discipline. How does your community handle bullying? Like at most other schools, bullying is taken very seriously at Sunset Sudbury. Instead we encourage students to use the student-led justice system.

Is it safe to let a young child play with a teenager? Parents of younger children may wonder why an older child would want to play with a younger child, so when they hear about it their initial reaction may be fear and doubt. But age-mixing is one of the most natural things for kids to do. Not only is it safe, it is one of the key ingredients that make the Sudbury model so successful.
Young children learn so much from older students, and older kids become more confident and more responsible when they can freely mix with younger kids. What is the role of staff? We do, however, recognize our special role in the community. Staff members are ultimately responsible for the survival and smooth functioning of the program.
On a day-to-day basis, staff members focus on holding the space in which children can be free within the boundaries of safety and respect. Although we practice non-interference as much as possible, we are always available to help students if and when they ask. How is your program different from day care? The thought of children playing all day without anyone forcing them to sit at desks may conjure up images of a day care. But because students at Sunset Sudbury are not told what to do and are certainly not entertained, they must constantly decide what to do with their time.

Freedom is not as easy as you may think, especially for older children who are not practiced in it, and responsibility is even harder.
Transitioning to a non-Sudbury environment What if my child transfers to another school? When these kids go into an authoritarian situation, they do not feel threatened about losing their identity; they see the situation, instead, as a game that has to be played in a certain way.
