building an extraordinary system, for extraordinary kids.

One size does not fit all.

It doesn’t fit anyone.

We’ve built an education model that works like a factory. We assume kids enter looking nearly the same. We file and chisel them away so they fit our model. And when they don’t, we cast them aside and focus on the average.

there is no average.

And there never was.

Kids' don't look the same. The average kid doesn't exist. That’s what science has told us recently. There is no average. Each kid is totally unique. What if we built a system with that in mind?

let’s break from the mold.

Let's put an end to average.

It’s time we break our kids out of the mold, start thinking outside the factory-model, and embrace the uniqueness that makes each kid so extraordinary. It’s time we rethink education from the ground up.

let’s unleash the potential.

Every kid has extraordinary potential.

Albert Einstein once said “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it's stupid.” We believe that firmly. We’re asking kids to be something they aren’t. Let’s harness the extraordinary potential of every kid.

let’s say yes.

We’re done hearing no.

We demand a system that unites us again.
We demand a system that believes in each of us.
We demand a system built to unlock the potential of every kid.
We demand a system that says, ‘Yes.’

it's that simple. instead of saying no. we say yes.

We’re done with negativity.

Education reform has been saying “no” for decades. Saying no to educators, parents, and real solutions. Instead, we say “yes.” Yes, every kid can learn. Yes, your ideas matter. Yes, together we can make change. We know that if we wait for change to come down from above, it won’t be change in the right direction.

yes. real change.

We’re done with smoke and mirrors.

So how do we do it? Real change has to start from the ground up. We’re here as your resource to facilitate conversation. We’re here to foster a culture of disruptive innovation. We want to hear new ideas, new solutions, and new voices. And it can only happen when we listen to the real stakeholders in education: you.

yes. working together.

We’re done being divided

We’re all in this together. We’re all on the same team. We all want the same things. That’s why we’re pulling together those stakeholders, you, families, educators, and kids, into the same conversation. Talk to your neighbors, friends, and educators about education and let us guide the conversation with data, ideas from around the nation, and a ton of fun activities.

yes. great educators.

We’re done excluding expert voices.

Did we say educators too? Yes, educators are the key to a better education models. They’re sick and tired of being handcuffed by a broken system. They want to be a part of the solution and who better to help? They’re experts in education and in how our kids learn. We invite educators and parents to open the dialogue together.

yes. every kid.

We’re ready to revolutionize.

Let's recommit to provide educational models that see the uniqueness in our kids. The purpose of education should be to help students discover, develop, and apply their unique abilities, establishing a foundation for a life of fulfillment and success. We know you share that goal. It's time to create an environment that embraces it.
