The Cherry Hill School draws on proven educational philosophies to create the best possible learning experiences. Our students benefit from the educational philosophies of Jean Piaget (Constructivist Education), and Loris Malaguzzi (Reggio Emilia Pedagogy), as well as some of the proven practices used in the schools of Finland.
Student involvement in the curriculum promotes a deep understanding of subjects and sparks a life-long love of learning. Students learn core subjects, as well as life lessons, through hands-on learning experiences. Project – based learning makes learning meaningful and make lessons stick. It’s also crucial to take the time to reflect upon an experience which helps to solidify lessons learned. This can be achieved through: discussions, artistic experiences, journaling and more.
Our program’s focus on sustainability inspires our students to think about the world, their relationship to it, and their ability to influence it. This helps them understand the interconnectedness of humans, economies, and all of the Earth’s systems as well as the important role they play in creating a sustainable future.
