This is Ayden he is a 10 year old who is willing to work for a better education. He was bullied and board in public school. Standing up for him self even to the principal who wanted Ayden be like all the rest. Ayden refused. He wanted to learn cursive writing , natural science and social justice not play computer games stair at the back of his teachers head during lessons. We investigated many schools and he fell in love with the Greenfeild Center School. He pretty much told the admissions director he was going to go there during his interview.
We have been working hard to get him there and keep him there ever since. He and his god mother devised a plan to build bird houses to help bird conservation and help raise funds. We built 58 last year and have completed last year's payments. We could not have done it with out the help of our community. We were awarded and secured a scholarship for this year's tuition and are seeking donations to help us pay for this coming year.
I am a single disabled mother of two, we have no contact with family do to a history of abuse. We are trying to both heal and move forward. This school is key to that for my son.
They provide a rigorous education steeped in social justice and world stewartship. They are sensitive to my child's unique needs and see him as a human being not a number or a problem. His ideas are welcome. He is heard and nurtured. And he is blooming into the person I always hoped he would be given the chance to be. Himself.
After the loss of his grandfathers' this summer he has taken a little time off but he is getting back into the game. He is attending Center School again this year and we need your help to keep him there. .
Thank you for your support.
