About Coast Redwood Middle School

Coast Redwood Middle School (part of the SLVUSD Charter School) is a homeschool support program for 6-8th graders that offers a two-day-a-week classroom-based ongoing group experience. It is specially designed for students who are on the path to becoming more independent learners and who want to help support a consistent group of peers as co-learners. This program integrates social-emotional learning with students working collaboratively on projects that help to develop their critical and creative thinking. CRMS comprises families who want to maintain a strong, homeschool relationship with their pre-adolescent children and are willing to help support a fun and active class group by participating in camping, field trips, parent-taught courses, and special activities. Our year includes subject-specific classes, student project presentations, theme-based science, thoughtful speaking, writing, problem-solving, and photography, with the students creating their yearbooks. Emphasis is on project-based learning and real-life application of skills. The teacher helps guide each student, offering support for individual studies outside the classroom and group-focused activities during class time. We believe that education works best in a relationship with others and that learning flourishes when it includes a clear awareness of individual and group processes through self-reflection.

What is expected from the students:

Regular attendance, a commitment to doing your best, a desire to fully participate, a willingness to reflect on the learning process, both in writing and verbally, and a dedication to supporting other individuals in the group and the unity of the group.

What is expected from the parents:

You engage in dialog regularly with your child about class activities and homeschooling and support completing homework assignments. Participate in parent-teacher meetings in person and via phone or email. Keeping a daily log of homeschooling activities and submitting that log along with an attendance sheet and samples of student work on time each month to facilitate the creation of a portfolio.
To ensure the best consistency, cohesion, and continuity, we request that enrollment in CRMS be a year-long commitment. Student and parent input and interests will help guide the schedule and methods of instruction both in class and at home.
