Welcome to Family School
Carpinteria Family School offers an educational alternative to students, teachers, and parents in the Carpinteria Unified School District. Parents, district staff, administration, and School Board created Carpinteria Family School with the belief that children come to school already immersed in their learning and have their own strengths and interests. We seek to support the individual and provide guidance, stimulation, and support. Carpinteria Family School strives to be a leading educational force in open education.
As an open school, Carpinteria Family School promotes social and emotional development. Children learn to share knowledge and feelings, to solve interpersonal problems, to develop common goals, and to respect each other's values. The emphasis is on challenging students individually based on cooperation rather than competition. Freedom, responsibility, self-discipline, and consideration of others are learned by daily practice. When combined with the richness of the school's diverse population and a daily commitment to multi cultural education, these various components challenge barriers to equity.
Our school is a community of life-long learners. School and home are blended into a larger community as children, teachers and parents work together. Carpinteria Family School draws families from the entire Carpinteria Unified School District. The community extends beyond the classroom walls to other classes, to our urban community, and out into the world.
