Attend To Details


It looks like someone wasn’t paying attention.

Every day at Ambleside School, we hone the Habit of Attention.

“At Ambleside, we understand that the primary work of both student and teacher is to attend.   It is the task that precedes all others.  

Attend to literature, science, mathematics, history, and geography;

attend to insights received from texts and from one another;

attend to the practices of thinking, speaking, writing, seeing, drawing, singing, playing, and relating.”   

And when they grow up, we expect them to attend to driving!

-- Debra Christenson, Ambleside School Board Member
