UBUNTU, Ubuntu (oo-buun-too) - has its origin in the Bantu languages of southern Africa. "I am because you are." A philosophy of humanism, emphasizing the link between the individual and the collective group. Ubuntu seeks to unite individuals, while respecting their autonomy, for the betterment of the group. The U School Philosophy of Learning is rooted in the recognition of each individual's self-worth while embracing the importance of the collective group. We believe there is no one right way to learn, and therefore, a commitment to each child's natural desire to learn is at the heart of The U School Philosophy of Learning. Our goal is to build each child's foundation for and excitement about a lifetime of learning. http://theubuntuschool.com/philosophy/
