Big Picture Principles

  1. Small by design—kids are known personally by staff
  2. Advisory groups—a small group of kids (14-18) stay with the same base teacher throughout their time at school.  This is their primary community in their school.
  3. Personalised learning—the curriculum is built from kids interests and passions
  4. Pursuing passions—kids are supporting in discovering and growing these
  5. Families are enrolled too—families are involved at every step of the way.
  6. Learning through internships—interest-based learning in the community through work with mentors
  7. Authentic assessment—performance-based in front of an authentic audience.
