I don’t think I ever really talk a lot about the school in which I work. Part of this is because I have found that I live in a bubble – a bubble of high technology use, of 21st century classrooms, and of truly great teachers. I find that it is difficult to explain my school to others – it is far easier to show them.
In that spirit, I’m sharing a video that was made at our school on Friday before Winter Break. It shows our school spirit and a glimpse of what makes our school unique. It is a public school. Students are chosen randomly by lottery – there are no prerequisites for being selected. Yet our school outperforms many others, simply because of the atmosphere of high expectations we set and the relevance of the learning experience.
