YOU'RE ONE OF A KIND
Your education should be to.
The answer is not to standardize education, but to personalize it and customize it to the needs of each child and community. There is no alternative. There never was.
Sir Ken Robinson
HOW
We strive to model authentic, collaborative learning environments for adolescents.  To demonstrate that cultural literacy and foundational skills can be acquired with a pluralistic, learner-centered approach. To show that teenagers can successfully govern their time, endeavors, relationships, and school community. To exhibit programs where every student can have a personal coach inside of school, and a mentor outside of school. And to showcase graduates both competent and confident to direct and sustain their own lives.

To accomplish this requires doing things a little differently.  We believe schools should be:
PERSONALIZED
Relevant to you and your dreams.
AUTHENTIC
Do real stuff that matters.
COLLABORATIVE
Working and learning in a community.
RELATIONSHIP-BASED
Everyone benefits from a coach.
PURPOSEFULLY SMALL
Where everybody knows your name.
SELF-GOVERNING
Decision-making by - and for - students.
FELLOW TRAVELERS
Big Picture Learning
One student at a time.
One Stone
Making students better leaders and the world a better place.

Building the future of school, together.
