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 disciplines and topics. Students are encouraged to run with their own interests, becoming experts, and then teaching others what they know.
