This school is a model of the alt-right views of the current Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos. It is closely associated with Hillsdale College, which has a history of racial and gender discrimination. See NEPC Colorado website - blog entry on Hillsdale College This is not a neutral rigorous learning environment. The school presents itself as unbiased, which is impossible There is a strong underlying agenda that believes in American exceptionalism. In addition, Christianity is strongly promoted in the classroom, through selected literature. There is a strong view of the superiority of Western thought. The principal told a parent who inquired about offering Spanish, no great literature is written in Spanish so we will consider French or German. All schools should be committed and proud of their approach to learning, but not at the expense of belittling different views. From the top-down, it is clear that Golden View considers itself superior to others. The school strongly promotes individual efforts (no teamwork), which is ironic considering the strong focus on history and the classics. You would think they would see that each person is influenced by the current culture and our place in history. Not so. Individuals function in a vacuum at Golden View so, despite a heavy focus on seven virtues, the environment is anything but collaborative. It is extremely competitive; it is every man for himself. There is little critical thinking among the parent community they believe everything the principal communicates.
