A new democratic free school is forming in Essex County, NJ!


- Are you looking for Educational Alternatives for your child?

- Are you looking for a school that puts the emphasis on learning and growth rather than grades, tests, and homework?

- Are you hoping your children will find joy, kindness, and an atmosphere of trust at school?
- Are you looking for an educational option that supports your child’s unique strengths and qualities?

- Do you believe schools should conform to the child’s needs and not the other way around?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then our community discussion on Democratic Education, and our new school, South Mountain Co-op, will be of great interest to you. Please join us and help spread the word about this timely conversation on our new school.

South Mountain Co-op’s approach to education is individualized and curiosity driven: students are free to explore the world around them at their own pace and according to their own interests, with the support of the adult staff and school community at large. School governance is collaborative and participatory: each member of the community, regardless of age or role, has an equal say in the consensus decision-making process and running of the school. We are dedicated to creating and maintaining an environment of trust and respect; supporting students on their individual learning paths; and fostering strong connections to fellow SMC members, to families, and to the surrounding community.!/SouthMountainCoOp
