Marietta Johnson School of Education, located in beautiful Fairhope, Alabama.
"Where Learning is Living, and Living is Learning!"
We are a private school, founded in 1907 and still going strong! Check out our History page to learn more about how we got started.
Folks are often surprised that our school is so old. They think the
Organic part of our name is a result of the back to nature movement of
the 60's and 70's and are amazed when told that Mrs. Johnson chose the
term to describe her philosophy of teaching.
Today's students learn concepts
in much the same way as Mrs. Johnson's students did. We observe nature,
record what we learn, and utilize reference materials to confirm our
findings rather than study a textbook that describes nature. Our
mornings are crammed with learning experiences so that we may spend our
afternoons engaging in music, drama, art, ceramics, and dance. Check out our Classes!
are now teaching third and fourth generations of local families. A
recurring theme among current students and alumni alike is their
enthusiasm for being at school. Many of our students arrive early and
complain that they have to leave when the final bell rings. Summer
vacations are viewed as an inconvenient pause in the learning process. I
hope you will learn something new while visiting our website.
