K-12 Schools

Making the world our classroom

As children progress from preK to primary the elements of learning and environment around them is constantly changing and for such changing needs we aim to provide “Finland’s phenomenon-based learning” approach. From the primary stage onwards, these interdisciplinary topics are implemented as learning themes throughout ZEST guides: interdisciplinary lessons that make learning relevant by linking classroom lessons to the world students experience every day

Students have autonomy over the phenomena they investigate in each ZEST guide and are mentored by teachers to synthesize content knowledge into personalized portfolios. Students leverage their strengths and preferences as learners to meaningfully engage with current issues in the world they encounter every day and contribute to their community on both local and global scales.
