Private school in Stafford, Oregon. Arbor School serves children ages five to thirteen. Each class is limited in size to assure individual attention through low student-teacher ratios. Mixed-age grouping is an important feature of Arbor education; we believe that combining ages creates classrooms that focus on individual talents and collaborative learning rather than on grade-level norms.
Children remain with the same teachers for at least two years of their schooling and also form important bonds with older and younger students to create a sense of community that spans all grades.
