Sep 04 Houston Chronicle ~ Schools Should Not Separate Students by Age
In the real world, adults work with peers and colleagues across different age groups.

In this article, by the Houston Chronicle, Siri – our Head of School discusses some of the reasons why mixed-age groups benefit students in all learning environments.
