“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” ~John Dewey
This quote could not better capture my hope for Pecan Trail. At Pecan Trail, we do not want to just infuse our students with knowledge. We want them to live and grow in our halls and our classrooms each day. As life is about success and failure, we want our students to learn how to thrive and how to find resiliency in themselves when they do not succeed. As life is about connection, we want our students to experience belonging and acceptance for all their myriad identities. As life is about finding a path and learning to tread off the beaten path, we want our students to learn to take risks and begin to learn their many potentials. As life is about community, we want our doors to be open and inviting to parents, friends, family, and all the many others who are there to uplift and celebrate all our students.
Welcome to Pecan Trail, where we do not just prepare students for life; we experience life each day to its fullest.
