Status Update on the 1st Democratic Free School in DFW

Donella May 31, 2015 0

So much has happened in the last couple of months. As we have been talking with people in the community it has become obvious that we need to spend some time really sharing the message of democratic free education. So many people assume that we are a "charter school." Therefore, we made the decision to remove the word "school" from our name and became simply: Makarios Learning Community. And that is just what we are; a community learning together in a happy, relaxed environment.


In April, we signed a lease on an amazing indoor space (280 Sports) in Southlake, Texas and began hosting family interviews and opened registration. While this area was not part of our initial search, we realized we would feel very disappointed if we did not manage to secure the space at 280 Sports. It seems to be a great fit for our community of interest directed learners!

This month as our initial crowd-funding campaign came to a close we want to express how extremely grateful we are for the individuals that have supported us in this launch, both here and abroad! Our next steps include ongoing family interviews and preparing our space for August 2015 opening. It's going to be a busy and creative summer! So, if you're in the neighborhood, stop on by. We're sure to have an extra paint brush laying around.
