We believe that the education ecosystem should evolve in an open and accessible way.

  • Lessons and content should be shared freely.
  • Silos should be minimized as we grow and explore together


We believe in creating an environment that drives genuine engagement fostering:

  • Autonomy
  • Mastery
  • Purpose

(Based on Dan Pink’s book: Drive)


We believe that we must continue to improve through innovation.

  • Finding new ways to improve instruction
  • Exploring the benefits of blended learning environments
  • Fostering creativity with students and staff
  • Curating educational resources
