LEARN, LEAD, CHANGE.

The Healdsburg School (THS) offers families an outstanding education for children in grades Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. Our dynamic learning environment ensures that children experience our school as a place where they are known and learning is personalized. We embrace a differentiated educational philosophy in which our talented teachers understand the learning and developmental needs of each student and provide the necessary support and challenge to ensure our students maximize their potential in intellectual, social/emotional, creative, and physical development.

WE TEACH CHILDREN HOW TO THINK,
NOT WHAT TO THINK

HISTORY

The Healdsburg School is a thriving community of inquisitive students, collaborative families, and inspiring faculty and administration. With the vision of Sandi Passalacqua and a team of passionate community members, THS  opened in 2007 with sixteen students. The Healdsburg School today provides a nurturing environment for two hundred students in grades K-8. As an independent school, our challenging academic program ensures the mastery of basic skills and the development of higher-order thinking abilities. Our program is complemented by a commitment to the arts, physical and social/emotional well being, and a belief in service.

“The small class sizes are ideal for me and the freedom of being in such a close-knit community really allows me to explore and discover.
To me, THS is a family.”

PURPOSE STATEMENT

We believe children deserve to discover and/or construct meaning and understanding through authentic learning experiences.  Every day we create opportunities for our students to explore new ideas, wrestle with complex issues, and listen with heart and mind to cultivate the skills and mindsets necessary to create a more just world.
