Picture a school organized around real-world problems that require the flexible application of concepts and skills with an eye toward identifying and developing kids’ passions. There is a combination of structure and “messing about." Students engage in a variety of experiences that ask them to contribute to building a healthy, sustainable and just world. Wow. Read it again and really picture it. Welcome to Douglas!
