A microschool for East Austin
The poorest and most marginalized of young people can’t currently afford to customize their learning experiences unless they become financially or socially independent and/or happen upon a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be lifted up out of their situation. The Second Home School for Personalized Learning (T2HS) seeks to help these young people discover their organically-constructed, large goals and big dreams and to guide them towards pathways that will make these same goals and dreams obtainable, all while catering to their natural curiosity for understanding the various systems and things existing around them. This is the school for those looking to learn more about themselves and their world and how to both thrive in and change them for the better.
The Second Home School for Personalized Learning’s mission is to provide socioeconomically disadvantaged students with a comfortable, stable, and individually relevant learning experience.
T2HS will serve as a place where innovative teaching practices that focus on student development inside and outside of the classroom are developed, perfected, and modeled as student populations change.
We’re going to get things rolling in the fall of 2018!
Right now, we are going to begin pilot programming at a local library or community center. In the future, we will be looking for a small, converted home on the east side of Austin to house our school so that our small, future cohort can have a comfortable place to settle into and call their own. Stay tuned for more information about our classes, application, and school day.
Please let us know if you have any questions about what we plan to do and accomplish.
