Our Approach to Education

Our schools are different. More than schools, they are progressive learning communities that place students at the center of the educational process. We call students 'learners' to emphasize their active role.

Our teachers are different. In addition to being fully credentialed and qualified to hold the center of a classroom, they are experts in facilitating learning from the edges of the classroom in a way that keeps learners central and active. We call them 'facilitators' to emphasize their supporting, guiding role.
