The learning environment at FSAS is designed to support the various ways of learning that are encouraged here. There are closed classroom spaces for directed lessons, open shared space for partner and team project work. At certain times in the day, the learning partners have the opporutniy to choose where they want to work. There is comfortable furniture where one can read a book, and a carpet area to study on the floor or standing tables. This flexible form of learning is possible at FSAS because children learn to stay on task, work quietly and respect the learning needs of the other children.
