A COMMUNITY-BASED, MICRO-SCHOOL, THAT PRIORITIZES
EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING, RELATIONSHIP BUILDING AND CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
So it is time to think about middle school . . .
WHY LA LUZ
Simply stated, school really hasn't changed in over 100 years and we know we can do much better! We are tired of tweaks to the existing school system and we want to fundamentally change the way kids are educated to make it more equitable, more engaging, more real-world, more in-line with current research, and really, more FUN!
HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?
We know learning can and should happen anywhere and at anytime, not just in a classroom! So we are working hard with partners in our community, like the Denver Zoo, to create authentic six-week learning experiences. Sound different? It is! Check out our ideas and draft calendar for what learning might look like in 2021!
This has been years in the making and after hundreds of conversations, focus groups, and surveys, we are super excited to share all we have learned. Please take a look at what we recently learned from over 175 students and parents in the Denver community along with links to our design principles.
