In-Person Instruction (for opt-in students) Begins April 19

On Friday, April 9, 2021, the Grove School Board approved the revised return to in person instruction plan. With 60% of students selecting In-Person Instruction (IPI), Grove will be instituting IPI model 2.1, a hybrid model that offers in person instruction 5 days a week following our current schedule and simultaneous instruction for distance learning students. 

Distance Learning Students will have no change in schedule or classes, and should attend via Zoom, as usual.

The Grove School is excited to welcome students back to campus for IPI, as well as continuing work with students who opted to continue with Distance Learning. The Grove School staff has prepared our campus for students to return and have developed systems and procedures to provide a safe learning environment for all students when they return to campus on April 19th.

The information below and on our In-Person Instruction Plan (IPI) webpage, including the Grove School COVID Health and Hygiene Policies, will help students and families know what to expect as they return to campus for in-person instruction.

For your family to better understand what to expect and some important preparation for returning to school, please complete the following:

Thank you for your continued support of the Grove School,

Andrew Christopherson

Head of School

Mission & Vision

The Grove School is a public Montessori community that guides adolescents in their work of self-construction, as they become engaged and respectful world citizens.

The Grove School relies on the framework for adolescent education defined by Maria Montessori. At the core of her vision is the expectation that students will “pass from one stage of independence to a higher [one], by means of their own activity, through their own effort or will.” The Grove School’s unique, rich, safe, challenging, relevant and comprehensive program is valued as a vital part of Redlands heritage and legacy. All members of our community model respect and clear communication in order to foster collaboration and cooperation.

A Grove student will be the architect of her own future; learning from peers and teachers how to live an authentic life beyond perceived boundaries.
