For the past four years, AltSchool has been building a technology-enabled network to empower and connect families, students, and teachers. We started by opening our first school back in fall 2013 and, since that time, we have expanded to schools across San Francisco, Palo Alto, and New York City. In partnership with our educators, our technology and design teams have created a platform to personalize learning and streamline school operations.
AltSchool currently runs a network of tuition-funded pre-kindergarten through 8th-grade lab schools throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, and soon, Chicago. Our schools range in size from 35 to 120 students and offer mixed-aged learning environments where technology helps educators create personalized, foundational knowledge and project-based learning experiences focused on developing the whole child.
We’re also building a network of partner schools who share a similar aim of transforming educational experiences for their students. Using AltSchool’s technology platform and the knowledge garnered from our lab schools, partner schools are optimizing their processes and creating their own whole-child, personalized learning environments.
AltSchool, PBC, is proud to be both a Certified B Corporation and a public benefit corporation.
By voluntarily setting high standards for social contribution, environmental responsibility, and accountability to a greater good, we are distinguishing ourselves within the education sector by modeling a better way to do business for our students, families, and schools. Certified B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders, which for AltSchool means students, parents, educators, and partner schools.
