Preparing them to run the world by giving them a world to run

Today’s students need to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, global collaborators, change makers and directors of their own learning.

With MicroSociety, school is society, a thriving, modern-day, mini-metropolis—complete with a government center, entrepreneurial hub, non-profit organizations, and a consumer marketplace created and managed by students and facilitated by teachers and community mentors. It is learning at the highest end of Bloom’s Taxonomy learning objectives – application, synthesis, analysis and creativity.

“Kids want to make meaning of their lives. If we treat them like they are not capable, we won’t get very far. We have to leverage what they do have and believe that if we give them opportunity, that they will rise to the occasion.”-George Richmond , Founder of MicroSociety
