The purpose of Block Island School is to educate young people intellectually, socially, and physically through challenging curriculum and to encourage their healthy, moral, and emotional development. Block Island School seeks to instill appreciation of individual differences and skills necessary to become responsible and contributing citizens in a unique community. Block Island School advocates student knowledge and respect for our fragile environment and its protection. Recognizing the importance of technology, Block Island School is committed to incorporating technological experiences cross-curriculum. Students should learn to develop personal goals and come to understand that learning is a life-long process. Cooperation among students, faculty, parents, and community members should successfully support this statement of purpose.
