What we believe.

At the end of each quarter, Ampersand School hosts an exhibition of student projects to which parents and friends of the school are invited. These are projects that each student decides to work on that incorporates a specific theme for a particular quarter such as earthquakes, water, energy, etc. Displaying their work for public appreciation boosts students’ confidence and gives them a tangible sense of contribution. Our students have written and published books, created websites, and built models. They have even appeared on stage!

The level of complexity varies with each student and once they realize they are not competing against one another, it’s wonderful to see how their minds open up with creative passion. This approach challenges the conventional acceptance of standardization and lays the foundation for an ideological shift. A belief in an educational system that is universal without being one-size-fits-all.
