Co-create your school

Students and staff create the school's culture and norms within the basic core values and routines. School communities are created in a variety of ways by students, including:

  • Clubs and interest groups created by students
  • Student-run small businesses
  • Making furniture and choosing art to decorate the physical space
  • Course design, creation, and even teaching
  • Morning and afternoon meetings are part of the daily routine

Working together

Studying and working together are important to our students. Taking part in entrepreneurship in school and outside of it, like our New York students operating a compost bin business.

We help our students build new things in their communities through creativity, innovation, and ambition. Their hobbies include volunteering, starting businesses, and creating art.
