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

character building
cognitive development
conflict resolution
coping skills
critical thinking

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.

Ben & Andrew decided to interview #Mayor Cary Glickstein as part of their final #AmericanHistory project. They took what we #learned about the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and local #government & applied it to #Delray. They asked Mayor Glickstein some tough questions but also kept things light— we now know what the Mayor would bring if he were on a deserted island.

Chef Neil’s #culinary class has been researching traditional #HaitianRecipes in preparation for our #cultural immersion. Today we took research to the streets! We toured SE 2nd ave which is a street with many Haitian-run businesses. Our #students stopped at Lamy’s #photography studio where he and his partner, Fritz, discussed the Haitian revolution, traditional dishes, and more. From there, we headed to La Belle #Creole for rice & beans, fried plantains, spicy cabbage, fried pork, salad, and chicken stew. For those who might not know, we are partnering with Be Like Brit to take our students to Haiti this coming April. Contact us with any questions or to find out how you can help us raise money!
