What is RealSchool?

This blog is about the RealSchool experience. Here, we will update you on the progress of the RealSchool teams. What is Real School, you ask? RealSchool aims to reform education by piquing students’ interests in a variety of different fields that they may not be able to study in a traditional classroom. In fact, RealSchool is nothing like a traditional classroom. Students decide on the material they’ll be studying; their teacher serves only as a facilitator but not as an expert in the field of study; and all work is project-based and collaborative. RealSchool’s faculty advisor is Mrs. Tikvah Wiener, who was inspired by Ken Robinson’s revolutionary video about reforming education. Check out the video here:
