The fact is that given the challenges we face, education doesn’t need to be reformed — it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.” – Sir Ken Robinson, The Element (2009).
At Thrive all students Learn to Learn, Learn to Do, and Learn to Be. We believe learners must be engaged and their needs personalized. We believe it is our role as a school to create opportunities where students can create, explore and discover their passions. We believe that an adaptive curriculum and a collaborative learning community will prepare our students for life beyond their school years, and incorporate several Essential Practices to this end.
“If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow.”
