Sage Bagnato, a Charlotte mom of three, has studied neuroscience and education at Harvard and worked as a classroom teacher, educational diagnostician and learning specialist. She's putting that experience to use this fall when she opens Vermont Day School, an independent K-5 school off Route 7 in Shelburne. Over the last 20 years, Bagnato has honed her vision, which includes project-based, interdisciplinary learning with a focus on science, technology, engineering and math education, aka STEM. Students will have access to an Innovation Lab where they can work on design projects and experiment with a 3-D printer. The nonprofit school will start with three multi-age classrooms and add a grade each year until the oldest kids reach eighth grade. A recent $25,000 donation will go toward scholarships for qualifying students. "It's been such a busy year," Bagnato says of the planning that has gone into establishing the school," and "it's been incredibly fulfilling to see it come together."
