When we trust and equip, not enable, students with the skills to make good decisions about their learning, and support them through missteps, they become successful, independent decision makers.
We are committed to fostering the development of relationship building and networking skills. As globalization rapidly increases, students and staff will have the self-knowledge and relationship building skills to thrive in our interconnected world.
We are intentionally bringing together young people and adults from wide-ranging communities with diverse socioeconomic, ethnic, racial, cultural, sexual, and social identity backgrounds in order to provide broader perspectives with which to formulate, view, and solve real world problems.
We strive for excellence by doing work that has purpose and meaning. Furthermore, we believe excellence is determined by assessment of performance on real world projects. Assessment includes teachers, peers, self, and authentic audiences, as often as possible.
