What lies at the heart of Peregrine is the fundamental development of relationships. Our students belong and have a sense of place in our small community. At Peregrine we put connections at the heart of our structure. We keep the school and class size small, we keep children with the same teachers year after year in mixed age groupings and we use first names. By doing this we build very strong connections between people; connections that are more like those in an extended family. Students learn and progress at their own pace and teacher expectation of each student is high as they know them well. Character development is as important as intellectual growth.
When you use this structure you get great results; the children engage in learning, they develop empathy and love school.
It is our intent that the school remains small. We have a firm belief in the human benefits of small schools.
