A school where your student is known.
First and foremost, the CUBE School is a place of safety, community, deep learning, and the acquisition of necessary skills. We believe that every student should feel known deeply. We believe our main responsibility is getting students ready for the future—a future that is hard to predict. And while it’s hard to know what the future will look like, we do know that there are social, academic, and character skills that will ensure students are prepared. That’s why we emphasize knowing our students deeply. Otherwise, how else can we support and challenge them?
PROMISe 1: Authentic Learning For the real world
Our students will learn in ways that stick. We don’t want students to cram for a test only to forget everything that learned the next week. We want students who can tie things they’ve learned to projects they’ve done, papers they’ve written, and experiences they’ve had. We also want the content of that learning to be important to their current and future lives—learning that will show up in their time outside of school.
Promise 2: Known, Heard, and Challenged
We believe that you can’t motivate a student you don’t know. Through having a small school, a dedicated advisory program, frequent community meetings, and multiple opportunities for out of school experiences, we build a lot of time for teachers to get to know students and vis versa. This allows us both to hold our students accountable and to challenge them to reach new heights.
Promise 3: Prepared for College And Beyond
Students need to learn how to be successful on tests like the SAT and ACT. They need to know how to think through math problems and write clearly and with complexity. But they also need to know self-advocacy. They need to know how to communicate, how to make friends, and how to handle conflict. By focusing on academic and character development, we prepare our students to get into college, and we also teach them how to thrive once they’re there.
