Houston Sudbury School
Houston Sudbury School (HSS) is a non-profit private Sudbury school in Houston, Texas. The school, in the Acres Homes area, serves students of ages 6-18 and follows the Sudbury model of self-education.
The democracy is meted out in a weekly school meeting where staff and students discuss and vote on a variety of administrative aspects of the school, including rules. These rules are enforced through a peer justice system called the judicial committee.
The school was founded in 2016 by Dominique Side and Cara DeBusk and opened in January of that year.
Its original campus was in Independence Heights. As of 2017[update] the school had 23 students; two of them identified as transgender, and the student body originated from various socioeconomic and racial groups. It was scheduled to move into its current campus in May 2017.
