Vision and Values
We treat everyone we encounter with compassion, seeing the humanity behind every person's problems and experiences.
We honor everyone's space and focus on their attention. We adopt mindful working & learning practices to create safe spaces for everyone.
Our word is our bond. We honor agreement, apologize, and find ways to repair relationships and bonds when we cause harm; we hold ourselves and one another accountable.
We adopt the radical view that the voice of the youth can change the world. We value and uplift the students’ voices and empower students to take charge of their learning and explore the topics they love. We honor informal education – we learn together, improve together, and push ourselves and one another to be greater. We believe in student-led education.
We learn alongside our students and learn from them. We collaborate with our students to create solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems. We invest in the genius of youth. We believe in peer-to-peer education.
