Small Business Shoutout: The Sycamore School

ARLnow is continuing a series of articles to highlight the local businesses that advertise with us and help keep the community informed during these trying times.

Today we’re giving a big tip of the cap to The Sycamore School.

Based in Ballston, Sycamore School is “an independent secondary school helping students find their place… in the classroom, in the community, in the world.” It believes that conventional education focuses too much on standardized tests and rigid standards, and not enough on individuality, innovation, curiosity, emotional development and civic engagement.

If you’re considering education alternatives for grades 5-12, give Sycamore School a look and sign up for a (remote) school information session.

Thank you to The Sycamore School for its continued support of local journalism.
