Our students graduate fully prepared for, and driven to explore post-secondary learning, creative,

and service opportunities inspired to become catalysts in actively transforming their communities.


Hands-on, problem- and project-driven exploration of the contemporary world
is what we’re all about:

  • Every classroom ​is a maker space where students participate in teacher-mentored projects that shape and anchor their learning.

  • Students gain key knowledge
    and skills while investigating and responding to authentic, complex questions, problems, and challenges.


  • We believe the desire to do something real, create something meaningful, and solve real problems is fundamental to human nature. Therefore, every Studio School student engages in practices of making to apply their learning.



We hold community as a core value:

  • Each classroom is a connected, inclusive, cooperative and supportive learning-centered environment where students and educators actively construct knowledge together.

  • Teachers model, encourage,
    and expect active participation
    ​and engagement, and set high expectations for all students while providing appropriate supports
    so all can succeed.


  • We value everyone’s diverse ​
    point-of-view, contributions ​and potential. We do all we can to help every student feel they truly belong and are seen and heard in their school community.


A focus on creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration is essential to prepare students for the future:

  • 21st Century Skills are ways of thinking and abilities essential for success in college and career.

  • Studio School students become civically aware, digitally savvy global citizens by learning to investigate the world, weigh diverse perspectives, communicate their ideas, take action, and apply their learning to different academic and service-learning projects.

  • Every Studio School student actively participates in constructing their purpose in the ever-changing world around them.​
