The Gordon School will host Come Play!, a free open house, on Saturday, January 12th for prospective students ages two to five and their families. The community is invited to tour the school, learn more about its values, and meet the faculty and staff.
Guests are invited to tinker in the IDEA Lab, design and build with Big Blue Blocks, create with art materials, experiment with the scientific process, try a musical instrument, investigate math manipulatives, and explore classroom centers. For more information and to RSVP, visit http://www.gordonschool.org/comeplay. Space is limited.
Founded in 1910, Gordon provides a rigorous multicultural curriculum spanning all disciplines. Students come to understand that each academic skill has purposeful application in the world in which they live. Most importantly, Gordon students gain the capacity to understand all things from multiple perspectives. The goal is for students to see the world as it is from different points of view, to develop a strong sense of self and purpose, and to carry the ability to bring about positive change into their adult lives.
About Gordon School
The Gordon School, in East Providence, Rhode Island, was founded in 1910 as the state’s only non-public coeducational school. Since then, the school has evolved into a progressive institution that offers students academic experiences that have applications far beyond the classroom. With a practical hands-on, real-world instructional approach, each student comes to truly appreciate the value of multiple perspectives. Learning takes place among a diverse population of students and teachers who reflect the many cultures within Rhode Island’s community. Educating children from nursery school through eighth grade, Gordon’s goal is to graduate intellectual leaders and joyful learners who understand empathy, and young people who will make a positive impact on the world.
