Below are some videos that talk about and explain the Sudbury Model of Education and the Hudson Valley Sudbury 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.
