We believe anything is possible with support, encouragement, hard work and a stick to it attitude. We come together each day to learn and do so through direct instruction, conversation, debate and focus. We don't give up but instead we recognize opportunity and use it to inform our next action or decision. Determined students at our school write novels, win college scholarships, build 3-D printers, make rocket fuel, adapt an original short story for stage, create sets and props and perform it for 100+ audience members, build play yard equipment, cook a three course meal for 70, care for a school mascot, Skype with NASA staff, follow the lessons delivered by a college professor and teach themselves to play guitars, produce animated movies, and work in a professional studio to record original music and lyrics. They also learn the three R's and and all other subjects that push them to think and do.
