Building on the concept of “generous ecosystems,” we were invited to consider what nature teaches us about networks, and how we could use that learning to grow our budding Catalyst Leaders network in a way that would serve as a generative power for other schools.
We, the teachers of New Roots, are working hard every day to build a learning community that is engaging, challenging, and safe for the students who walk through our doors.
In this inaugural year of LEAP, our innovative new high school preparatory program, our vision of deeply engaged, community-based education that fuels passion for learning and academic achievement is being realized.
Student Council engages New Roots students in real-world democracy, empowering them to take action on issues that affect their lives at school and beyond!
New Roots Senior, Zach Stallman, shares his thoughts about the value of community-based learning.
