  1. Those attend­ing the open house should be aware that Paideia is not an ele­men­tary school rec­og­nized by the State as a legal school. Rather, it is a home­school pro­gram with all par­ents required to sign a state­ment that they are home­school­ing their chil­dren. (If you do not sign the home­school state­ment, your child is legal­ly tru­ant.) If you choose to send your child there, make sure that you are prop­er­ly fol­low­ing the home­school laws or you may be liable for penal­ties for vio­lat­ing the edu­ca­tion law.

  2. Mr. Mabeuf, Thank you for your care and con­cern of our Island Fam­i­lies. Rest assured all of the appro­pri­ate infor­ma­tion about Paideia Clas­si­cal School is pro­vid­ed to those inter­est­ed in what Paideia Clas­si­cal School has to offer our com­mu­ni­ty chil­dren and fam­i­lies. The dis­cus­sion on how best to edu­cate any child is not tak­en light­ly but with much care and con­cern for the child and fam­i­ly needs and all options are open­ly discussed.

    And why might you add this post? Are you asso­ci­at­ed with this school or any oth­er Edu­ca­tion­al Insti­tu­tion you have “for­got­ten” to put a dis­claimer to by any chance?

  3. I’m cer­tain­ly glad that all your par­ents are aware that they are home­school­ing their chil­dren. As to whether the infor­ma­tion is pro­vid­ed to those inter­est­ed in the school, I can only say that when I was look­ing for schools for my grand­chil­dren on your island, your web­site cer­tain­ly did not make this infor­ma­tion read­i­ly available.

    As a retired teacher I do, I admit, have a bias toward schools which meet the state stan­dards for ele­men­tary schools, includ­ing using trained and cer­ti­fied teach­ers such as I was (and am). If you con­sid­er that deserv­ing a dis­claimer, there it is.
