Our flexible approach challenges each student with their own differentiated learning plan and inspires them through real-world projects and experiences. Supported by the latest in technology and cognitive science, we move beyond the traditional tools of lectures, homework, high-stakes tests, and grades. Our students learn in collaborative studios of multi-age learners.
