Progressive schools for a creative child not interested in 3-D printing
We currently live on the east coast but are looking at schools in the bay area for our daughter who will be entering 4th grade in 2018. She is not particularly interested in 3-D printing or tinkering. She likes theater, drawing, writing, horse-riding, handwork, piano, reading... but in spite of repeated exposure, has shown no interest in 3-D printing or tinkering with wood and metal. When I asked her the other day about it, she told me blank-point that she is not. On the other hand, she spent all morning today drawing and writing a story she is working on, and she is always putting on plays with her friends... so she certainly is creative in her own way.
There are schools that are of interest to us - like Park Day or Black Pine Circle, but I'm a little wary of their strong 'maker culture'. Will she be a fish out of water at such schools? Which progressive schools in the area might be a good fit for a non-maker creative child? (To be honest, I'm not really clear myself on what the 'maker culture' entails.. but we will be visiting the schools in January when we will learn more)
