New Paradigm Education

A Message from Jeff Carreira
I recognized the value of what Phil has to offer this school when I first visited The Upland Hills School that he ran and developed starting in 1972. The school teaches children in an awakened atmosphere bursting with love and curiosity. When I learned how Phil had worked with Buckminister Fuller and how Bucky’s ideas had inspired the pedagogical approach of Upland Hills School I knew that Phil had something of tremendous value to offer to the Mystery School and our own exploration of how we can best educate children for a new paradigm.
About Phil

Phillip Moore served as director of Upland Hills School north of Detroit from 1972 until 2013. Phil's work with the visionary genius Buckminster Fuller inspired the school's love-based educational philosophy and fuelled a vibrant learning community around the school.

Over four decades, Moore developed a profound and inspired learning community. This culture developed a synergetic collaboration between the staff members that transcended most traditional models of educational institutions. The students, ages 4 to 14 were nurtured to cultivate joy, curiosity and an insatiable love of life. The first graduates are now successful adults, showing the flowering of their youthful potential.

Phil also led a team to raise 1.5 million dollars to secure a total of 31 acres of land, build 5 innovative structures, develop renewable energy production for the majority of their needs, and provide retirement income for their Dignity Teachers who have given over 30 years of service. Phil is currently developing a team of Conscious Teachers to guide and innovate new initiatives through He and his wife Karen raised two amazing children both of whom attended the school full term. They are blessed with five wonderful grandchildren.
