Thoreau Demonstration Academy is a body-brain compatible learning environment that utilizes many research-based Best Practices including Tribes, Highly Effective Teaching (H.E.T.), MicroSociety, school uniforms, and an extended school day. Our student-teacher ratio creates a personalized teaching-learning environment where every student is valued and encouraged to perform at their personal best.
Our mission at Thoreau is to provide a working facility where secondary teachers, administrators, and parents can observe how researched-based best practices are implemented for the benefit of all students. It is our desire to develop literate, competent, responsible citizens, and foster a lifelong love for learning in them.
Furthermore, the purpose of Thoreau Demonstration Academy is to create a body-brain compatible learning environment for students and adults, where every child is nurtured to develop intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically.
