A New Way to "School"


Roots: A New Way to "School"

"My wish for us is to help kids discover the possibilities out there, and within themselves, as opposed to the rigid, developmentally inappropriate standardized paradigm of typical schooling".

"One of the most delicious aspects of a Not-School setting is the ability to shift as needs arise.

A bespoke, independent microschool like Roots exists to serve the children and families who show up. This is a nuanced difference from a franchise microschool which starts with an expected business model. In this space, kids learn to take care of their needs instead of forcing planned activities."
