Sycamore School’s vision for education is to help the students developed into self-directed, autonomous problem solvers and facilitate each child’s quest to create meaning in the world. The school’s mission statement is to, “champion innovation education to create a learning experience that is engagement based, continuous and future focused.”
The school is engagement-based, future-focused and continuous in a sense that every student understands that learning goes beyond just text books and contexts. Sycamore School is a very unique school that is independent and located in the canyon of Malibu. The location of the school creates an atmosphere for the students to be reminded of the importance of ecology and environmental stewardship.
