Countryside helps students understand and be aware of their relationship with the universe. We model peace and the responsibility we have for shaping the future. We embrace caring and sharing with others.


Students are introduced to the importance of seeing themselves, not as self-engrossed individuals, but as peacekeepers and caretakers of the universe. As a result, we have a strong community service focus for our students throughout the year.
