In the hands of the students, democracy will thrive.

Alternative school frees the mind

"Fairhaven School was founded in 1998, modeled after the Sudbury Valley School in Massachusetts. Students are free to pursue their education as they see fit, based on the assumption that when children are left to their own devices, they initiate worthwhile pursuits. On the 12-acre campus off of Queen Anne Bridge Road, barefoot students play fantasy games such as "Munchkin Wars" and build forts next to streams."
