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