The Middle Way School of the Hudson Valley opened in September, 2018, with a mixed-age kindergarten and grades 1 and 2. Our plan is to add a grade each year to grow into a full K-12 school.
The Middle Way School is the epicenter of a global initiative to build a comprehensive model of education supported by classical Buddhist wisdom traditions and advancements in the fields of neuroscience, human development, and education.
Buddhist logic and wisdom are powerful means to support students in developing an inquisitive approach to being in the world. Curious and unpretentious, with a habit of examining before adopting anything as being true—these are hallmarks of a mind trained in the dharma. They are also qualities of successful innovators and leaders. But only when these qualities are cultivated with a wish to benefit others can we really claim success. With the additional motivation of bodhicitta, innovation becomes much more than just a means to get rich. Therefore helping others is one of the core values of the school.
