Old Adobe School has adopted "Toolbox." Toolbox is a program that teaches children how to use ther own internal resources to manage themselves and to deal with difficult situations. Toolbox is based on mindfulness and is used throughout our school.
Old Adobe Charter School is a small school with a big heart. Families and staff work closely together to create a special place to learn and grow. Old Adobe truly is a place where, "everyone knows your name." We are a unique school with a challenging charter. Our charter features integrating the arts into all curricular areas and teaching ecology through a school-wide edible garden. We feature strong academics taught in ways allow creativity and are in line with how the brain learns best.
Many families take a lot of time to join the right school for their children. While there are many good choices in Petaluma we are especially proud of the education and community experience offered by Old Adobe Elementary Charter School of Arts and Ecology.
In order to let you know more about the 'small school with a big heart' we have created this video. This will let you know a some of the things that are special about Old Adobe.
The vision of the OAECS is to provide an educational experience that creates knowledgeable, caring, and responsible young people. The curriculum at OAECS will be well-rounded and infused with the arts while establishing values leading to responsible treatment of the environment. The OAECS will produce students who can express themselves in many ways.
Students will use dance, drama, visual arts, theater, writing, technology and other means to demonstrate their learning and express their creativity. Our students will know how to be leaders in learning situations, treat those around them with respect, resolve conflict, and become part of their community. OAECS will instill in our students the required learning as well as foster creativity and responsibility.
