Sebastopol school embraces its student-driven curriculum

Park Side School kindergarten teacher Julie Aiello has been teaching for 27 years, but five years ago she volunteered to set aside much of the structure that she practiced as a teacher and start largely anew.

And she has loved every minute of it.

"The kids are so invested because they told me what they want to learn," she said of her 26 kindergarten students. "It's harder, but it's a lot more interesting for me."

The change in teaching was part of the Sebastopol school's five-year quest to become an accredited International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program — one of just 27 in California and the only one in Sonoma County. Next month the school will mark its one-year anniversary as one of 296 primary grades IB programs in the nation.
