Marcy Open School

Marcy Open School offers a learning climate where the student is the center, emphasizing academic achievement as well as personal development that promotes lifelong learning and individual goal setting. Learning takes place using integrated, project-based curriculum in which students are taught to take responsibility for themselves and their learning. Teachers function as guides and facilitators of learning.

Marcy strongly promotes learning through the arts by involving students in arts activities with local artists through the Marcy Arts Partnership; and emphasizes a commitment to peace education through its membership as an International Peace Site.

Parents are welcome in school as observers, helpers and classroom participants. What is an Open School?
