What is a Sudbury School?

An interest in Sudbury style schools happily grew out of my studies on play. I’m part of a group looking to start a Sudbury school in the Iowa City area. If you’re interested let me know!

We are curious, we seek out knowledge, skills and understanding when confronted with a problem, a desire, or simlply something we find interesting. The original Sudbury Valley School is still going today, as well as many other schools built on the same model. We would like to open a Sudbury Valley style school in the Iowa City area.
