• This school emphasizes a hands- on, creative approach for all the students.
• In every class, students will spend a lot of time reading, taking notes, and asking questions, but they will also have the opportunity to plan a real-life workshop at the end of each chapter or unit.
• Students will gain real-world experience in every subject and they will use what they have learned in the classroom to complete these workshops.
• All students must take a variety of core classes, but they can choose to take different electives.
• All core classes have a regular, honors and/or Advanced Placement option to ensure that all students will be learning at their own level and pace.

The New York School
for Developing Young Minds
This school name prioritizes my philosophies of Progressivism and Essentialism. High School students here are working to build on important core ideas but they are also working to become more independent with their education as they move into adulthood.
Inside of the School
• Classrooms will all be spacious so students can be creative yet it will also be a serious work environment when it needs to be. The room will have a “smartboard” to ensure interactive learning. Each classroom will have a smaller room connected to it with work tables, computers, and various other resources so students can work in smaller groups on workshops.
A Typical Classroom
Science Labs
Science rooms will be equipped with lap equipment and the rooms will be very spacious to allow more hands-on learning.
Shop Rooms
Shop rooms will be in the school for larger projects and workshops. There will always be a teacher here facilitaing these projects.
Music Rooms
The music/theater department will be in the same area, but each part of the department will have its own room. These classrooms will be located right next to the auditorium in order to give the students access to it whenever it is needed. Theater classes will be held in the school’s small black-box theater. A typical room in this department would look like this:
Art Rooms
Home Economics Rooms
Cafeteria/Common Room
Learning Centers
After School Enrichment
After School Enrichment is a place for students to do homework (with the help of available tutors) and to wait for after school activities to begin.
Career Center
The Career Center focuses on helping students to explore different careers. They can shadow workers and even find internships. This is hands on and initiated by students.
Planning Stations
These rooms are for students to reserve to work on large scale projects. The rooms have computers, projectors, and any supplies needed for projects. It is located next to the library for research purposes.
The Library
The library is the students' center for research. Students are encouraged to find their own research materials (with the help of instructors) and spend a lot of time here.
Media Room
This room is used for computer and media classes but it also serves as a valuable tool for students.
School Location
The school will be located in New York City, New York. New York City has three libraries, hundreds of historical sites, museums, parks, theaters, and a zoo. Although New York is a very large city, the atmosphere provides older students with many opportunities to get out of the classroom and explore. Field trips can be organized in or out of the classroom and students can bring what they have learned through exploring to the classroom.
Hands-on (Active) Learning
“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”

Why will Students be Successful?
Student-teacher Ratio
The student-teacher ratio of 20:1 is important to both students and teachers because smaller class sizes means more concentration and less distractions. Teachers can focus more on each student and get to know their strengths and weaknesses.
Grade Levels
This school is to serve as a high school because high school students are at a critical phase in their development; they are at the cusp of adulthood and they need to be prepared for the real world. High school will prepare them for their future at college or in the work force. The idea of a progressive/essentialist school allows students to gain a sense of independence by working on projects yet teachers are also able to guide them in learning the essential subjects.
Enriching Students
Students do not always learn when they are faced with lectures and tests. Students will be motivated to learn when they can freely choose how they are going to apply what they have learned. This independence will help students grow into adult learners. All of the students will be exposed to a wide variety of core classes and electives that will make them well-rounded and give them many interests to explore.
