We champion the spirit of curiosity and creativity through exploration. At UnSchool, learning extends beyond textbooks and classrooms. We encourage students to delve into various subject areas, experiment with ideas, and imagine the limitless possibilities.

Knowledge & Competency
At UnSchool, we embark on a dual journey of Knowledge and Competency, two essential aspects of learning that guide our educational philosophy.
Knowledge: The Foundation of Understanding
Knowledge is the accumulation of facts, theories, and principles about a subject. It’s the understanding of physics formulas, the events of history, or the words of a foreign language. But at UnSchool, Knowledge is more than memorization; it’s about comprehension and connection.
Competency: The Power of Application
Competency goes beyond knowing; it’s about doing. It’s the ability to use physics formulas to solve problems, to speak a foreign language in conversation, or to apply historical insights in today’s world. Competency is the practical side of learning, turning Knowledge into action.
We believe that true education involves both knowing and doing. At UnSchool, students are guided to build a strong foundation of Knowledge and then apply it through Competency. Through a blend of theoretical study and hands-on experiences, our learners not only understand the world but also engage with it.
Join us in this transformative educational experience, where assessments are not about judging but about understanding, guiding, and inspiring learners towards a fulfilling and successful lifelong learning journey. Assessment at UnSchool is about celebrating strengths, acknowledging struggles, and empowering students to become confident, competent, and compassionate learners.
