Empathy - We seek to continually put ourselves in someone else's shoes and seek new ways of
approaching a problem. Every member of our community has unique perspectives, strengths
and struggles, and we strive to adapt our approach to see the world from their point of view.
Thinking - We challenge ourselves to dive deep into any idea, seeking a strong understanding as
opposed to merely reciting facts. We believe in putting complex problems in the hands of
inspired young people, setting the bar higher and higher beyond what even they assume they
Balance - We seek both left-brained and right-brained thinkers, creativity alongside analysis.
Seeking both macro and micro, we study the species and the ecosystem, the inflection of one
note and the whole orchestra. We find balance in perspective and our schools seek to always
show both sides of a picture.
