The Discovery School

Public education is a great privilege. However, the standard education system in our country has many flaws, including the expectation for all children to flourish at the same thing and in the same environment.

One issue The Discover School aims to address is what happens to the children with undiagnosed learning differences? Or the ones that may excel in one skill or subject and not perform well in others?

In The Discovery School, children can discover their autonomy in what they learn and how they learn. They can create a learning trajectory based on their unique interests and capabilities, allowing them to excel in what they are good at rather than struggling to fit a general standard.

They can learn through a lens of their own making rooted in their interests through classrooms consisting of distinct modules that correspond to specific learning trajectories like art, math, and sci. Once aggregated, the modules create overlaps where trajectories can mix, allowing students to learn and further explore their education through these adjacencies.
