Our UN-Curriculum Kuumba Methodology
Our UN-curriculum is organic and evolving.
It emanates from the student’s interests and the teachers gifts.
Language, writing, math and science are woven into our daily activities. Our experiences over the course of six years have shown us the value of allowing children to be children. We provide the space for students to discover, and create agendas that revolve around their interests and their way of learning. This methodology allows the children to live fully and joyfully in the world, with a greater acceptance of who they are and
with a profound respect for others.
Our goal is that the students of Kuumba Shule will be self-motivated and solution oriented with an abiding curiosity about the world and their place in it.

Presently, we are affiliated through the University of Transformational Leadership at Agape I.S.C. as a spiritually progressive school.
Accreditation is not a requirement for this independent school.
We will satisfy all California State education requirements.
We believe that the more exposure anyone has to nature, the arts and creative sciences through fun-filled, hands-on interactive-activities, outdoor play and field trips to places that spark the imagination, the happier and more inspired the child will be.
