COVID-19 Plans

Mistwood Directors are working on our plans for 2020-2021 school year.  As we are social distancing this year, we are capping our enrollment at 25.  Whether we reopen fully, with a hybrid plan or are distance learning, we will focus on individual learning and attention to each family and student.  Small group classes (less than 10 kids), one on one tutoring (through an online platform) and individual lessons are what make Mistwood a ‘best practices’ school.  Please contact us if you have any questions.


See our new online store, where you can buy masks, shirts and hoodies.

Our Vision

Our passion is to see children being happy, loving to come to school; having enthusiasm to learn; celebrating who they are each hour, each day; celebrating those around them; and being able to start again after a problem has been resolved. They serve as a powerful, ever-present reminder for us to stay in the moment; engross ourselves in a subject; and delight in the variety of human nature and development that surrounds us.

Mistwood Founders and Directors (1979-2013): Julie Dorman and Marsha Aden-Wansbury

Our Mission

To provide a rich, stimulating, highly academic and fine arts environment in which students and adults have great respect for each other, for themselves, and for their immediate and global environment (we have a behavior code and ethics classes discussing non-exclusion and non-judgment of others).

Dress and Behavior Code

We believe school is for learning, so we ask that kids do not bring electronics or pop culture into our learning environment. By joining together in this endeavor we can provide a happy and safe learning environment.
