WELCOME TO THE FAMILY SCHOOL
The Family School is an accredited independent nonprofit co-educational preschool through 5th grade school located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, 6 miles from the center of Los Olivos. Serving close to 90 students, The Family School provides challenging, developmentally appropriate academic and artistic programs that establish a strong educational foundation and inspire a love of learning. The focus of the whole school on the social and emotional development of the child creates a safe environment where students are willing to take risks and express themselves through a variety of mediums.
A low student/teacher ratio (12:1) provides individual attention for each child and fosters close, caring relationships between and among teachers and students. The curriculum design assures that students master the basic skills of reading, writing, and mathematics, and that their studies are authentic and meaningful. Science (including hands-on ecology and environmental studies), Spanish, physical education, art, musical theater, and social studies are integrated into the school week, across the grade levels providing a broad enriched program. Emphasis is placed on problem-solving, using analytical, critical, and creative approaches to the tasks at hand.
