The traditional school system doesn’t work
Traditional schools do a terrible job preparing kids for adulthood. The real world doesn’t revolve around cramming for tests, or memorizing random geographic facts.
Instead, it’s built on creative problem solving, self-direction, ownership, adaptivity, and discipline. It rewards people who can identify a problem and figure out the solution, independent of others – even if no one has ever done it before.
The change in schooling approaches in recent years has proved this. We have lots of successful models to choose from: unschooling, online schools, Montessori schools, microschools, and hybrid schools.
But rather than proclaiming one style of education is superior, we realize that every child is different, and needs a school that adapts to them, rather than the other way around.
We’re here to provide you with the tools to make an informed decision on the best possible education for your kids.
