AltSchool provides a unique and personalized learning approach by placing the interests of the learner at the center of everything they do. Through smaller classroom student-to-teacher ratios, an analytical approach combined with educational best practices, state-of-the-art classroom design and technology, a diverse environment, and community and parental engagement, AltSchool is creating a model to bring out the best in every child.

AltSchool micro-schools are small learning communities with approximately 80-150 students that are designed to be flexible in adapting to the needs of students, teachers, and parents.

Omidyar Network’s investment provides AltSchool with the resources and flexibility to build an alternative school system that is focused on learning outcomes and drives innovation in education. More importantly, through the personalized learning plans, the school cultivates each child academically, socially, and emotionally.
