Description
Through our belief that learning should be fun, hands-on and student-driven, SOM empowers students to find happiness and success through :

character building
citizenship
cognitive development
communication
compassion
confidence
conflict resolution
coping skills
creativity
critical thinking
curiosity


we are for students!

We are for students who are still learning to love learning and sometimes still learning to love themselves. Who prefer hands-on experiences, a flexible and creative approach and want to have a say in how they learn. Who want independence and are developing the self-awareness and skills to get there. Who have busy brains, creative spirits and unique perspectives. Who want to wake up every day and be themselves.


we are for families!

We are a place where family members feel safe, loved and celebrated as they grow individually and together. Families who want to learn to struggle less by spending more quality time together. Who want to set realistic expectations and accept one another, communicate better and laugh more than cry when life gets stressful. We are truly a family of families. Each of our stories are different, but our goals are the same: to share peace, love and happiness in our home.


we are for professionals!

We are for educators, coaches, business professionals, creative artists, caretakers and medical/therapy providers who are always looking for resources and alternatives to help our students, clients and contacts find ‘space of mind’ and achieve success. It truly takes a village to raise a child, so the more we collaborate and share ideas, resources and observations, the easier and more engaging everyone’s efforts become.

Some of our summer discovery camp students tested their baking skills and made this gorgeous upside down cake with local fruits (along w a little help, of course). We think it turned out delicious! #somsummerdiscovery

Some of our #summerstudyhall students take a break from academics to work on their crochet, which has been a popular choice for study break.

All of the students at #somsummer2018 are here for the record release party of this week’s #somsummerdiscovery camp at the schoolhouse. They wrote, recorded, and produced their own original song complete with cover art. We are proud of these rockstars!

It’s busy at the end of the year!! We completely forgot to get the #getyourgreenon photo before the students were dismissed! But we did dress in green to acknowledge that resources, research and support are needed to further our advancement of mental health treatment. Thank you to Healthier Delray Beach for organizing this aweSOMe day of awareness! #gygo #gogreenformentalhealth

Our World Cultures and Geography class is making an altered book that will be a travel guide to some of their favorite countries. They have been working hard learning about research methods, citing sources, and using research in writing. Now it’s time to put it all together in our quarter end creative project! #israel #australia #hungary #japan #china #projectbasedlearning #spaceofmind
