The mission of the Workshop School is to unleash the creative and intellectual potential of young people to solve the world’s toughest problems. The curriculum is organized around projects and real- world problems rather than subject areas, with students working in small groups or individually for much of the day. Technology is seamlessly woven throughout the model, with students creating and sharing content online and using a blended learning model to personalize subject area learning in support of project work.

School Culture
Student Attendance92%
This is the average daily attendance at the school – on average, what percent of all the students enrolled at the school are in attendance. We don’t know why students may not be attending the school, but if this is a low number it is likely that teachers may have to spend more time reviewing material that absent students miss, making it harder to move forward in a class.
