Your schoolhouse is designed around your family's needs. When you meet with a SchoolHouse counselor, we’ll ask about the interests, strengths, and needs that make your child unique.
Then we'll design the school around you. That means:
"From a parent's perspective: Just seeing our kids excited to go to "School" together, settle down to their new routines and work, be reenergized, stimulated, and thereby more in tune/peace with themselves and the world around them. From a child’s perspective: the science experiments!"
We handle everything around finding and vetting the right teacher for you.
We're a team of former educators and school leaders. Our experiences have helped us determine what is critical for a child's success.
Teaching is hard work - it takes care, intelligence, and commitment to the practice. That is why we thoroughly screen our teachers to make sure they're amazing before we introduce them to you,
SchoolHouse is not just a solution for parents looking for quality education, but also teachers across the nation.
We attract top educators in the field with our higher salaries and smaller classrooms. This allows them to focus on what they do best - teach.
"You have the opportunity to choose a teacher who knows how to get the spark out of every child. They can start with the core curriculum and work with parents to learn what we care about, like linking history lessons with current events. It's a totally different mindset."
"I think there are so many great things about SchoolHouse that it is hard to narrow down to one. The one though that does stand out the most is also the small class size. It is really nice to be able to give so much attention to the children and their work. I see such an improvement in their skills already! It is fun to see them grow and watch them shine!"
Finding the right curriculum is about matching the needs of your SchoolHouse. Your curriculum could have a focus on literacy, a daily math intensive, or a fun science project every week. We can make it happen.
We can match the curriculum to your state’s standards - the ones your school follows. Or, we can set up a parallel curriculum, that covers the objectives you choose. Many parents also choose to emphasize particular content for their children.
Let's talk about interests and needs.
Perhaps your child needs extra help in math or reading. If so, we will work to find a teacher who has a background in that area and supplement them to help bridge the gap.
With class sizes this small, differentiating the curriculum is possible and extremely easy.
For example, if the child or families have a special interest, like rocketry or language immersion, we can build the curriculum to meet those needs.
We will assist you to build the best educational experience for your child.
We handle all the paperwork, accounting, legal, and regulatory issues to ensure that your school is abiding by all the necessary standards and best practices.
"The best part of being a SchoolHouse teacher is the potential that comes along with it. In many ways, the potential for how different and effective this rethinking of education can eventually become has breathed a new life into the process. This profession has a way of making the professionals within it sometimes feel like buoys caught riding the tide of shifting policy, misaligned priorities, and CYA paperwork. Or maybe that's just me. But this feels like it can be something different. And that potential is the absolute best part of this journey."
"Seeing the kids so happy and in school again - they come home with smiles on their faces and excited to talk about their day!
