FlexSchool is a day school for gifted and twice exceptional (2e) middle and high school students. With two campuses, one in New Jersey and another in New Haven, Connecticut, FlexSchool provides a high-quality, flexible, individualized educational experience for divergent thinkers in middle school, high school and post-graduate year. The school provides one-on-one courses for those students who want to be a part of a school, yet need individual attention in some or all of their courses. The faculty focuses on critical thinking in all areas of learning; a “toolbox” concept emphasizing how to learn rather than an “encyclopedia” concept emphasizing specific material (though all core bases are covered in depth). Block scheduling promotes in-depth discussions and extensive experiments. For students in one-on-one courses, the depth and flexibility of the teaching staff enables students to customize their schedules.
Khan Lab School was launched as a brick-and-mortar school by the founder of Khan Academy, Sal Khan. Lab schools are dedicated to research-based instruction and furthering innovation in education. Khan Lab School currently serves students ages 5-12 and intends to expand to a full K-12 model. In keeping with Sal Khan’s One World Schoolhouse philosophy, the school is an extended-year, extended-day, mixed-age program with a collaborative, project-based learning approach. The students do not have homework, the school does not have grade levels, or grades, and is mastery-based. The main focus in all subjects is leveraging world-class teacher-designers to build a community that encourages inquiry and self-direction. For tuition information, visit the Lab School's website.
Founded in 1948 by a group of parents looking for an uncommon education for their children, Far Brook is an independent, nonprofit, coeducational day school for students from nursery through 8th grade. Far Brook values character as much as achievement, process as much as product. Our curriculum is unified by inter-disciplinary studies of thematic units and great historical eras which allow a child to relate himself to the universe and to the history of mankind.
