Vision:
The success of a student is most dependent on the local school leader or principal, who directly oversees the year-to-year progress of each and every student. Most principals, however, receive little support and minimal training in being an effective leader, especially as school leaders become ever more autonomous and in control of their school’s budget. This is in the face of an ever-growing need for educational equity, where students from diverse backgrounds receive an equally successful education as their majority peers. Curious School is built on the recognition that the best educators are authentic leaders, advocates for equity, and true social entrepreneurs who do all that is necessary to guarantee an equitable education for all diverse students.
