School Notes:

School for Tomorrow (SFT) is a groundbreaking, nonprofit, model independent school committed to serving a diversity of students in grades 4-12. Founded in 2009 in response to a crit­ical need for change in secondary educa­tion, SFT uses the most current and compelling research, resources, and prac­tices from the field of educa­tion and beyond to empower individuals to reach their fullest potential in academics and in life in the decades ahead. Among the many things that make SFT a “school unlike any other,” the following three aspects of SFT stand out:

1. We provide a truly customized education, tailoring the curriculum to each child’s needs. This means that the most academically gifted and the below average student can be fully challenged and grow far beyond where they could in a traditional setting.

2. We provide a holistic education. We recognize that success in academics and in life is predicated on far more than academic skills and content knowledge. Without emotional, social, and physical well-being, one cannot reach their fullest potential. Therefore, we integrate the development of the emotional, physical, and social aspects of self into our curriculum and community.

3. We serve a diverse student body. We believe that most students can benefit from an SFT education. We also believe that students gain important social and life skills by interacting with people who are different than them. While other schools are becoming increasingly specialized, we want to create a school that mirrors the broader society. Customization allows students to achieve and be challenged within a diverse setting.

Our methods encourage constant inves­ti­ga­tion, analysis, crit­ical thinking, collab­o­ra­tion, and problem solving. We respect and support students as they take risks, learn from mistakes, and stretch them­selves in an inclusive envi­ron­ment of mutual caring and respect.
