Empowering Learners for a Dynamic and Interconnected World
In a world that’s rapidly changing and increasingly interconnected, traditional education models are falling short. At UnSchool, we recognize the need for a new approach—one that prepares our students to thrive in the 21st century.
At the heart of our approach is a commitment to learner-centered education. We acknowledge the uniqueness of each learner and adapt our curriculum to cater to their interests, strengths, and learning styles.
We emphasize the cultivation of meta-skills such as critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, and problem-solving. These skills equip our students to adapt, innovate, and lead in a complex world.
Exploration and Discovery
Inspired by methods like the Socratic and Harkness, our facilitators guide students on a journey of exploration and discovery. We believe learning extends beyond textbooks, fostering curiosity, experimentation, and real-world connections.
Our learning community emphasizes collaboration over competition. We foster a culture where students work together, learn from each other, and support each other’s growth.
Our eight foundational pillars guide our unique educational model, focusing on empowerment, exploration, fortitude, compassion, obsession, initiative, diversity, and inner growth. This ensures a holistic development, nurturing not just the intellect but the whole person.
We connect classroom learning with real-world contexts, integrating field visits, project-based learning, and living history into our curriculum. This makes learning relevant, meaningful, and engaging for our students.
Flexible and Innovative Assessment
Moving away from rigid standardized testing, our approach to assessment and feedback is flexible, personalized, and focused on continuous growth. We value the process of learning, providing regular feedback that encourages reflection and improvement.
Our approach is not about preparing students for exams or specific careers; it’s about preparing them for life. We equip them with the skills, attitudes, and mindset they need to navigate the complexities of the 21st century, contribute positively to society, and lead fulfilling lives.
At UnSchool, our approach is not about conforming to the status quo; it’s about challenging it. It’s about redefining education for a new era, creating a vibrant learning environment that empowers our students to become the innovators, thinkers, and leaders of tomorrow.
