Our Pillars

Namaste Charter School’s six “pillars”, or core values, guide the school’s work and demonstrate its commitment to a holistic educational environment that serves to strengthen student’s health and provides rigorous academic instruction. Namaste staff is committed to implementing each of these guiding pillars both in and outside of the classroom.

  1. The nutrition, health, and wellness pillar aims to create a learning environment that cultivates exercise, eating right, and taking care of mind as components of maintaining a healthy lifestyle for students, teachers, staff, and parents.
  2. The movement pillar aims to create a learning environment that incorporates movement into academic instruction to stimulate an alert and active body and mind for students, teachers, staff, and parents.
  3. The peaceful school culture pillar aims to create a learning environment that promotes safety, respect, open dialogue, and nonviolent conflict resolution for students, teachers, staff, and parents.
  4. Peaceful School Culture

    The language and culture pillar aims to create a learning environment that increases knowledge, respect, and appreciation for the languages and cultures of the world for students, teachers, staff, and parents.
  5. The collaborative practice aims to create a learning environment that maximizes partnership amongst students, teachers, staff, and parents.
  6. The balanced learning pillar aims to create a learning environment that values all levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy across the curriculum for students, teachers, staff, and parents.
