Fire Mountain School's mission is to nurture each child by providing a joyful, place-based learning experience. We have three central goals for our students: 1) That they develop a strong and positive sense of themselves; 2) That they come to see learning as an ongoing, joyful, and self-initiated quest; and 3) That they come to know themselves as interactive participants in the wider natural, social, and practical world.
