Mission and Vision

“If love is deep, much can be accomplished.”   Dr. Shinichi Suzuki

The Tree of Life Charter School (TLCS) is a unique TK-8th grade school that partners with parents to nurture the Heart, Mind, and Spirit of the child as they explore the world and discover their gifts.  TLCS recognizes the power of Life-giving words to bring hope, establish a positive identity, and equip students to set and achieve goals of excellence for themselves.  Students have the opportunity to acquire a 2nd and 3rd language, and explore global cultures through World Music and the Spanish/English Dual Immersion program. Students participate in a hands-on, Inquiry-Based Learning design which incorporates all subject matter through integrated units of study. Instruction is frequently taken out of the classroom, into the natural environment to allow for scientific exploration, observation and experimentation. TLCS employs a “Curriculum of Compassion” engaging students in a variety of service learning opportunities, allowing them to understand and help solve real-life problems and experience the satisfaction and joy of knowing they can be World Changers!
