Revolution School is a new independent high school in Philadelphia. Our students and teachers are inspired by each other, their world, and what matters. Revolution School is a place-based, humanistic, and learner-centered environment. We believe schools should be empowering (students own their work), integrated (cross-disciplinary rather than silo-ed content), joyous (fun and engaging), and diverse (valuing individuality). Revolution School students adopted the nickname "Renegades" because they see themselves as on the edge of a new way of learning and doing school.
That all people can learn and that the stickiest learning happens in authentic situations. You should also believe that kids are capable of more than they usually get credit or responsibility for. You think students are fun. If you are resilient and ready to try things in new ways. If you can keep your eye on traditional outcomes while being daring enough to try non-traditional pathways.
