School reimagined.

Creativity is, at its heart, the process of making new and original ideas that have value.

We're changing the way students engage in the classroom. Whether it’s making a prototype of a new invention, developing innovative ideas to reduce waste in the cafeteria, or launching a recording label featuring age appropriate music for tweens, our students transfer classroom learning to solve problems and fulfill needs in their community.

We give them more than just pencil and paper.

Our students are exploring technology, design, and storytelling to fuel their imaginations. From coding a video game about the founding of Georgia, to designing an aquaponics garden to feed their community, they use the tools of innovation today…..and tomorrow.
