ADemocratic Immersion STEAM school, Sudbury allows our students to take their educationinto their own hands!
STEM to STEAM
Eugene Sudbury School has made the transition from a STEM school to a STEAM school. Our mission is to prepare our students for citizenship, college, and career. In order to accomplish our goal, the arts have become a prominent part of our offered curriculum alongside science, technology, engineering, and math.
Students get creative with sewing, felting, painting, drawing, pottery, jewelry design, crafting, and more.
Students may work on creative writing, essay writing, poetry, technical writing, spelling, and vocabulary.
Photography and Videography
We have digital cameras and camcorders available upon request and photo manipulation and video editing software.
Every Platform, Every Language
Students can learn to develop programs in any language and on any platform that interests them.
All Things Computer
From website design to robotics, we make sure that students’ interest in computers is fostered.
Start Your Own Business
Students of any age may present the School Meeting with a business plan and have it funded with school resources.
Chemistry, Biology, Physics
Students are able to design their own experiments, and explore what interests them.
Students may advance in math as far as they wish – calculus and beyond! We have all the tools.
Whatever Your Student Loves
Geography, sociology, gender theory, anthropology… whatever your student has interest in, we have the resources.

What Is Democratic Education?
At Sudbury, students are free to choose their own educational path. Students can use any of the resources at Eugene Sudbury School to facilitate their learning, staff will be available to help if needed. If Sudbury doesn’t have the materials needed, then students can request them from the School Meeting. In short, at Sudbury:
The School Meeting meets weekly, and is comprised of students and staff each with an equal vote. School Meeting members may make motions, participate in debate, vote to approve, deny or amend any motion and generally voice their thoughts.
The meeting is run by Robert’s Rules of Order. There is a School Meeting Chair who ensures order at the meeting; all School Meeting members get an equal vote on every motion. There are motions to go on field trips, spend money to acquire resources, and change school rules among others.
