Fire Mountain School is a 22-year-old, small progressive elementary school in Falcon Cove, dedicated to assisting children in their ongoing work of exploring and making sense of the world. Teachers and parents join together to create a community structure within which children experience discovery, challenge, experimentation, risk, failure and mastery. FMS has three central goals for children: that they develop a strong and positive sense of themselves; that they come to see learning as an ongoing, joyful and self-initiated quest and that they come to know themselves as interactive participants in the wider natural, social and practical world.
