why aren't we a school?
At Arrowleaf, we believe first and foremost in healthy living. Children spend their best waking hours away from their family each day at school. These hours need to support and feed into a healthy life and a healthy family. Arrowleaf is not a school, because we want to be more and do more than a school can.
Things used to be different. There was time and space for children to be outside, to wander art galleries and to connect with their community. Arrowleaf brings together the best parts of life: family, school, community and nature to help restore a healthy balance.
Arrowleaf is not unschooling. We believe strongly in high achievement in academics and critical thinking and as such we have partnered with Kleos Open Learning (DL). Kleos Open Learning (DL) is the leading independent distributed learning school in our province committed to innovative and personalized education. Each student at Arrowleaf is enrolled at Kleos Open Learning (DL) and Arrowleaf works closely with Kleos teachers to support a seamless learning experience that is enriched and meets all requirements of the Ministry of Education. Arrowleaf is not a school, but we support Arrowleafers to accomplish their schooling each day.
