Inclusion of Students


My granddaughter Sophie attends the Girls Middle School in Mountain View, CA.  Her parent conference, which I had the privilege to attend, exemplified my strong educational philosophy: Include the student in all of her educational activities.  Present at this meeting were Sophie, her parents, myself and her advisor.  No teachers were there.  Sophie had prepared reports for each of her subjects together with her teachers.  She presented these reports and projects to us with the advisor just listening and providing rare guidance.  This entire half hour was hosted by the student, Sophie.  Totally student created and directed.

As one of her activities at the school Sophie, an 8th grader, assisted a sixth grader in preparing for her meeting with parents.  Students are indeed actively included in their education at this school.
