Imagine a world in which all children reach their potential.
Through our lab schools in New York City and San Francisco, and by partnering with schools across the U.S., we are transforming K-12 education. AltSchool’s personalized, whole-child approach to education helps children thrive in a rapidly changing world.
Explore Our Lab Schools
As centers of excellence, our lab schools are learner-centered environments in which we strive to create optimal learning conditions. Grounded in research about how children learn best, these five elements focus innovation across our schools.
1. Learner Agency
Our educators design learning experiences that give students meaningful choice. As they develop the capability for exercising choice, students become owners of their own learning.
Competency-based learning builds a student’s capacity to practice knowledge and skills in real contexts. This model deprioritizes the accumulation of prescribed knowledge.
3. Personalized, Relevant & Contextualized
Our educators create responsive, real-world learning experiences. They connect learning with each student’s unique needs, interests, and circumstances.
4. Socially Embedded
Our learning communities are intentionally designed to nurture a sense of belonging. The social nature of learning is a central part of the learning experience in our schools.
5. Open Walled
Learning at AltSchool takes place anytime and anywhere. Our learners explore their communities and we invite experts into our classrooms.
Our programs are rigorous yet flexible, and are designed to nurture learners. With each class spanning two years, students have the opportunity to collaborate across grade levels, serve as mentors, build confidence, and develop deep friendships.
