Their aim is to re-imagine middle school for the 21st century. Instead of seeing the middle school years as “awkward” and “difficult,” they think they’re the most important years to prepare students for the path to happy and successful adulthood. They've built a team of leading educators, researchers, and adolescent development psychologists, and together they're designing a new model for middle school: one that combines highly engaging academics with an approach that is social, personal, and rooted in the real world.
