About Living School

Our Mission

Living School cultivates equity by nurturing students to do work that improves their lives, communities, and environment through holistic health, citizenship, & entrepreneurship.

Our Vision

We envision a world where all children get what they need to live healthy, rewarding lives in equitable, peaceful communities, in an interconnected, thriving world.

Our Design Principles

  • Equity
    • Most schools measure success only with grades & test scores, reifying structural oppression. We measure success with outcomes that promote equity: student, community, and environmental holistic health.

  • Intentional Biodiversity
    • Most schools are de-facto segregated, use standardized methods, and focus on singular outcomes. We intentionally integrate diverse people and methods to create the conditions where a healthy ecosystem of learning can flourish.

  • Democratic Community
    • Most schools are built for students & families instead of with them, giving stakeholders little agency. Students, families, and staff form democratic branches that co-design every element of the school to balance institutionalized power.

  • Real World Work
    • Most schools silo ​and simplify learning into distinct subjects divorced from their authentic application. All learning is facilitated collaboratively through interdisciplinary, authentic inquiry, projects, problems, internships, and apprenticeships.
