When I wake up, I feel like every day feels like a saturday.  I look forward to coming to school, jut like the students do.

When students first come to school here, they expect the adults to be the authority figures.  It takes them about a year to realize that we all have equal authority.

You will notice that kids that have been here a long time are different than kids at other schools.

"When I pull in here, when I leave here, there are kids everywhere that are blossoming with energy and excitement.  I think to myself, 'wow, if I can send my kids to a school or if kids can spend time in a school for 13 years where they are happy and they want to go, that is huge.'  That is a huge chunk of their life that is setting up the rest of their life."

Introduction

Associated School: 

The Hudson Valley Sudbury School (HVSS) in Woodstock, NY is an alternative, private school for students ages 5 to 18. HVSS is based on the educational philosophy first developed by the Sudbury Valley School in Framingham, MA in 1968.

Students who attend HVSS create their own curriculum; they exercise their rights and responsibilities as members of an active democracy and they develop the skills and qualities necessary to become a successful adult. A Sudbury school respects their students. This respect is demonstrated by the trust placed in the students to determine their own curriculum and to be part of the democratic governance of the school.
