"Too often we give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve." Roger Lewin

Mission, Philosophy, and Statement on Diversity

MISSION

The mission of The Logan School for Creative Learning is to provide an experience-based educational opportunity for gifted children of all backgrounds that allows each child to develop individually to his or her full potential. There are five basic values that serve as the cornerstone from which we establish this environment:

Empowering Children

Empowering children is the process of helping all children see that they have power, control over, and responsibility for themselves. In addition, this process helps children see that they are a part of a diverse world and can cause change to happen.

Opening Doors

The school supports the child’s ability to experience as many ideas, learning processes, perspectives and opportunities as possible.

Fostering Responsibility

In teaching responsible decision making, we encourage the children to look at situations from a variety of directions, set a goal, evaluate each option in terms of the goal, take action for the goal to come to fruition, and assume responsibility for the consequences of that decision.

Fostering Independence

The Logan School provides an environment where children are encouraged to look at themselves honestly, to evaluate their own needs clearly, to make decisions responsibly, and to think for themselves.

Fostering Care and Concern for Others

At The Logan School, the feelings, needs, and ideas of each person are respected. We emphasize cooperation rather than competition. We strive to create and maintain an inclusive environment.

PHILOSOPHY

The Logan School for Creative Learning offers a unique learning environment for gifted children that stimulates academic accomplishment, critical thinking and creativity while fostering peer interaction and personal growth. We believe that such an environment is most effective when a diverse community studies, plays and grows together.

In addition to the traditional 3 R’s, we stress 3 additional R’s:

Research: searching out information
Reasoning: processing information
Recording: creating a way to save and/or share information

In today’s world, the body of knowledge is so large and the pace of acquisition so rapid that it is impossible to teach enough information to serve the student as an adult. The Logan School therefore emphasizes the higher levels of critical thinking as outlined in Bloom’s Taxonomy:

Analysis: The ability to break down material into its component parts so its structure can be understood.
Synthesis: The ability to put parts together to form a new whole.
Evaluation: The ability to judge the value of material for a given purpose.

Because our school is process-oriented, we encourage inventive thinking, imaginative and intuitive insight, and exploration and discovery of the world. The Logan School follows a holistic approach to teaching gifted children and enhances classroom curricula by offering an opportunity to investigate and explore a wide variety of fields.

Our staff develops a highly individualized curriculum for each child’s unique readiness level, learning style, and personal interests. In addition, small group and whole class learning activities are designed to provide group problem solving and interaction, as well as peer evaluation. We believe that there is merit to all learning approaches. We choose the approach that best suits the individual.

In each area, we strive to help the child move from his or her current level up to the next level of mastery. At The Logan School for Creative Learning, there are no ceilings.

An integral part of The Logan School’s philosophy is our commitment to experiential learning. Through this involved style of learning, students have the opportunity to fully integrate, better retain, and manipulate information in their world. Experiential learning is inherent in our individualized units, classroom activities, community trips, and the wealth of hands-on equipment available.

STATEMENT ON DIVERSITY

We highly value inclusiveness and diversity. Our community, including our Board of Trustees, approved the following diversity statement over ten years ago. Annually, the Board reaffirms their support of this statement. Each and every member of our community is vital to the ongoing work of inclusiveness.

“At The Logan School, we work to create an inclusive and equitable teaching and learning environment for all members of our community—staff, parents and children. This approach is a comprehensive framework for everything we do.

Education that embraces diversity focuses on both attitude and process. We promote a climate that celebrates diversity and rejects racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination. We also accept and affirm the pluralism of our world, as well as the challenges and common experiences that unite us. At The Logan School, diversity encompasses ethnicity, national background, religions, race, language, gender, economic background, sexual orientation, family structure, and disability when reasonable accommodations can be made, among other characteristics.

In our classrooms and our hallways, we foster the sharing of our histories and experiences in order to learn from each other and develop respect for different learning styles. We acknowledge one another’s strengths and weaknesses and strive to understand our differences and commonalities.

We believe parents, students and staff benefit from an inclusive approach to teaching and learning. Through honest dialogue, we support our children’s efforts to appreciate what we share and respect the ways in which we are different. As a result, our children will be best prepared to succeed, to participate, and to promote unity in our increasingly diverse society.”
