Not only is it more fun, but hands-on learning is the best way to engage children’s natural curiosity and energy. University Cooperative School students build, imagine, embody, and visit. In short, they do. For our students, school is a place where learning is personally meaningful and exciting.
Key pieces of our curriculum are divided into multi-subject, long-term projects. While learning core academic material, students also hone skills in working cooperatively, staying focused in long term projects, and understanding connections among different areas of study. Students are encouraged to run with their own interests, becoming experts, and then teaching others what they know.
