welcome

At full capacity, Spacious Skies will be a FREE public K-8 charter school that opens up the world to students in all its beauty and wonder.

Our Values

Enduring reverence for children and childhood

We recognize childhood as a stage in development and believe it should not be rushed. Students at Spacious Skies are immersed in developmentally appropriate programs and lessons when taking into consideration age, interest, and ability.

Steadfast respect for parents as educational partners

We look at families through a strengths-based lens and demonstrate empathy and understanding in all our interactions. We partner with families in meaningful ways that serve to enhance students’ educational experiences and ensure their success.

Profound trust in teachers as professionals

Teachers at Spacious Skies work collaboratively and purposefully toward increased student learning and school improvement. Teachers are leaders of improved instruction and are designers of curriculum and lessons.

Deep understanding of how children learn

We are dedicated to ongoing study of children and how they learn. We employ methods that are appropriate for children and the content.
