Ventana is a small, private school housed at an Episcopalian church. The students come from mostly affluent families, yet there is some ethnic diversity. The educational philosophy of Ventana (http://www.ventanaschool.org/index.php/whyventana) is “Reggio-inspired”, and the curriculum is largely driven by the students. We knew these kids were thinkers and were prepared for the onslaught of questions that were to come.
