The Open Door School
Open Door follows the Progressive philosophy of education. Progressive education is a movement that was first described by John Dewey in the beginning of the last century. Its mission is to help children grow into self-confident, ethical members of society.

The registration period for each school year takes place during the preceding February. Class placements have been made for 2017/2018 and all classes are full; however Open Door maintains waiting lists. If you would like to be added to the waiting lists, please contact the ODS office to schedule a tour.
There is a very active Parent Council that plans community-building events, adult education forums, and community outreach opportunities, and coordinates fundraising efforts to generate funds for scholarships as well as particular needs of the school as they develop.
