STATEMENT OF PHILOSOPHY

办学理念

The intent of the Oak Grove School is to provide students with the skills necessary to function in the modern world, and at the same time to provide a foundation for inquiry into the perennial questions of human life. Consistent with the views of its founder, J. Krishnamurti, the school does not subscribe to any creed or ideology. Rather, it assists students in investigating enduring human issues with originality and an open-minded spirit. The Oak Grove School focuses on:

橡树林学校的目标是培养学生在当代社会生存所必需的技能,与此同时,还要提供给学生一个探索人类生命永恒问题的平台。与学校创始人吉都·克里希那穆提的观点一致,学校不信奉任何教条或者意识形态,只会帮助学生以一种创新、开放的精神去调查这持续不断的人类问题。橡树林学校集中精力于:

1) Intellectual depth / aesthetic and environmental sensitivity. These complementary elements are acquired through the pursuit of excellence in academic work and experience in music, drama, the fine arts, ecology and outdoor education.

1)智力的深度 / 对美和环境的敏感性。这些互补性的素质是通过对优秀学业的追求,通过在音乐、戏剧、精美艺术品、生态学和户外教育等方面的实践来培养的。

2) Social responsibility and emotional stability. These are fostered through close relationship between students and teachers as well as close contact between school and home, and the development of the ability to observe oneself and one’s conditioning.

2)社会责任心和稳定的心理素质。这些素质通过如下途径来培养:学生和老师之间亲密的关系,学校和家庭之间紧密的联系,对自我和个人局限性的观察能力的发展。

3) Physical vitality and knowledge of the human body. These are acquired through sports, games and regular exercise; outdoor experiences such as hiking, camping and gardening; health education and a sound diet.

3)身体活力和人体知识。这些素质通过以下途径来培养:体育活动、游戏和周期性锻炼,户外实践活动(如郊游、露营、管理花园等),健康教育,合理的饮食习惯。

These areas of emphasis establish a safe environment from which to initiate individual and collective inquiries into the deepest questions that face human beings while still providing the academic skills so necessary to function in our immediate world. We strive for a noncompetitive atmosphere where physical, emotional and intellectual safety exists and where there is respect for students’ different levels of development.

通过对上述几方面的强调,就能建立一个安全的环境,在培养当今社会生存所必需的学术技能的同时,我们还可以单独地和集体地开展对人类所面临的最深刻问题的探索。我们努力营造一个没有竞争的氛围,在这里,身体上、心理上和智力上都会有安全保障,处于不同发展阶段的学生也都会得到尊重。

In his sixty years of involvement with various schools around the world, Mr. Krishnamurti returned again and again to the themes that are central to his work: the fundamental importance of establishing right relationship among human beings; sensitivity to nature and responsibility toward the environment; the conditioning of the individual by society, and by his or her own subjective demands; the function of images and concepts in daily life; the roots of psychological suffering at the individual and collective level; inward freedom and order; the significance of death; and the questions of a quality of mind not bound by time and circumstance.

在参与全世界各种学校的教育工作的六十年间,克里希那穆提先生总是一再地回到这些主题,这些也是他著作的核心:建立正确的人际关系的基础性和重要性,对大自然的敏感和对外界环境的责任心,社会原因及主观欲望造成的个人局限性,想象和概念在日常生活中的作用,心理痛苦的根源(包括个人和集体两个级别),内在的自由和秩序,死亡的意义,以及不受时间和外在约束的心理状况的种种问题。

Those responsible for the Oak Grove School are committed to providing an educational environment in which students feel free to raise and investigate all of these issues, and any others of a similar nature. The format for this inquiry may develop from subject matter, a personal problem, or spontaneous curiosity. There is no formal curriculum for presenting Krishnamurti’s work, and no student is required to “be interested” in Krishnamurti. The school maintains that true inquiry cannot be forced or artificially constructed in any way. Any collective endeavor in this area must be mutually forthcoming and, therefore, free.

橡树林学校的负责者们致力于提供这样的一个教育环境:学生们可以自由自在地提出和调查上述问题,以及其它所有类似问题。至于探索的方式,可以由学科资料产生,可以是个人的疑问,或者只是偶然的好奇心。学校不会提供关于克里希那穆提著作的正规课程,学生也不会被要求必须对克里希那穆提感兴趣。学校坚持认为,真正的探索不能是被强迫的,也是不能通过任何人为方式来塑造的。在这个领域,任何共同的努力都必须是同时进行的,所以也是自由的。
