When one enters a PEACE School they will perceive an energized hive of activity in a collaborative open concept environment. Each school day begins with a form of Meditation, Yoga, Pilates, Music, and more, to set the day’s tone … and ends with a Council Circle. From time to time, guest Mentors or ‘Experts’ visit the classrooms to share their experiences and expertise. At the end of each school day, in the Council Circle, students pass the “Talking Stick” granting each the opportunity to share their learning experience of the day. Faculty also convene to share their insights and experiences.
