At Golestan, we value nature, kindness, creativity, diligence, curiosity, and responsibility.
With the encouragement of altruism and empathy, we strive to foster a community of confident, caring, and compassionate children that value Iranian culture while being responsible and inspiring citizens of our ever-changing, multi-cultural world.
Golestan applies a heuristic approach to teaching and a holistic approach to living.
This is a full immersion program. While no English is ever spoken at the school, this is not a languageprogram. The children become native Persian speakers by being fully immersed in this nurturing and loving environment, not through direct instruction.
“On my way home, I was writing an email to you in my head about how grateful I am for finding Golestan… [On his first day, my son] had a tough morning and was in tears on the way there… Within a few minutes though he had a huge smile on his face and I heard later that he thought Golestan was ‘great!!!’ So I want to thank you for organizing such a loving, structured and playful environment.”
