Gretchen Graves

Head of School

“The fact is that given the challenges we face, education doesn't need to be reformed – it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.”
-Sir Ken Robinson

Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire.
