~ Dalton Founder Helen Parkhurst, 1919

The main subjects of our curriculum must be taught synthetically—that is, in their relation to each other—and not in self-contained compartments. Only in the synthetic way, only by realizing and constantly emphasizing that to know something of humanity, we must study and correlate History, the environment, Science, Literature, and Art, to make knowledge a living and fruitful organism.
