Whittle School & Studios is a new global network of Preschool to Grade 12, co-educational campuses.
We believe that all children are naturally curious and born to be great thinkers. Working with expert faculty, students will cultivate the skills, creativity, and character to address the world’s most pressing challenges. As students progress through each level of academics, personalized pathways, and dynamic international experiences, they will grow as thinkers, makers, scholars, collaborators, and global citizens.
Our curriculum focuses on:
- Deep skill and content mastery
- Interdisciplinary, project-based learning
- Experiential learning
- Choice and voice
This approach encourages students to weave connections among the artistic, intellectual, social, ethical, physical, and emotional threads of their learning. A Whittle School & Studios graduate is an independent thinker and a compassionate, humble, lifelong learner who wants to contribute to the world.
