What sets us apart?

  • Active learning vs. passive learning

  • We are research-driven instead of textbook-driven

  • Our learners and our guides co-create and co-learn

  • We believe in an integrated and interdisciplinary curriculum

  • We believe in collaboration where learners work together in mixed-age studios

  • We are driven by exploration and creativity where learning extends beyond the “classroom”

  • We have portfolios + exhibitions not grades
