What’s Revolutionary About Us?
A message from our founder, Heidi DeCoux.
Our current school system was designed during the industrial revolution in order to create great factory workers. And it worked well for that purpose.
We put kids in metal desks under fluorescent lighting for 8 hours a day with a bell that rings every 42 minutes and we teach them to follow orders, do repetitive tasks, color within the lines, never think for themselves, never think outside the box, and we purposely don’t give them the training and skills required to create financial freedom for themselves.
All of which helps kids become excellent dependent, lifelong factory workers.
120 years later the entire world has completely changed many times over, and yet our classrooms and our systems for educating our youth look very much the same.
As you’re well aware, we no longer need factory workers because we have robots. We now need innovators, problem-solvers, critical thinkers, communicators, explorers, leaders, humanitarians, entrepreneurs… and so on.
Because the current education system is inequitable on every level and broken beyond repair, we’re creating an entirely new system. One that equips our youth for the 21st and 22nd century.
Uber didn’t try to innovate taxis. Instead they created an entirely new model based on the needs of today’s world which made taxis obsolete. And then other companies launched using the same new model (Lyft for example).
That’s what we’re doing.
We’re doing to schools what Uber did to taxis.
This new model is going to raise up a generation of kids who know their unique genius and how to leverage it, and who are healthy, happy, productive, emotionally intelligent, critical thinking, global citizens who lead extraordinary lives and solve our world’s greatest challenges.
And we’re inviting you to join the revolution.
Great things are never achieved alone, we need you.
Our first school opens in Humacao Puerto Rico in August of 2022. It will start out small and we will be adding additional grades each year. It will eventually be a 1st-12th grade school.
We’ll also be opening a new style of Montessori school for ages 0-6.
