The curriculum is implemented in a way inteded to help develop our community of learners. The learning environment is designed to respect the diversity, rights, uniqueness and contribution of each student. In the multi-age classroom youngers and olders often come together to share in learning and celebrations. Students learn to cooperate by working in groups at every age level.
Every student makes an Extra-Extra presentation twice a year, giving a written, visual and oral presentation to all the Voyagers on their research on a self-selected subject, and the Voyagers make for a rapt audience.
Youngers and olders celebrate birthdays every month by the groups of students creating a project for the honored students.
Students do community service together, such as singing for elderly friends at the local retirement home or performing in the annual play for all of Ferry Elementary
