At Yucca Studios, we believe that learning to do, learning to be, and learning to learn are more important than memorization alone – learning to know.

"I would never have believed children could learn so much from each other – until I saw it with my own eyes. The lessons of self management and self governance have prepared our fifth-grade son to be a lifelong learner.”
