The Mosaic School's student-centered philosophy strives to ensure that every student is actively engaged in our community and the culture of our school. We believe each student should actively participate in, and feel a strong sense of belonging to our school. Each student will be well known, well respected, trusted and trusting within their cohort (small peer group) and their school. Our 21st century school prepares students for a lifetime of global citizenship as professionals, community leaders, as friends and as family members.

The world is rapidly changing as technology progresses. Our hands-on, interactive educational model focuses on habits of the mind allowing students to learn how to transfer and apply their academic knowledge in new situations. Our interdisciplinary project-based learning provides the academic foundation for success in high school, college and beyond.

Mosaic and IDEAS students explore sustainability

Mosaic School students participated in a Lexicon for Sustainability event held at the Mead Public Library Wednesday, April 22. IDEAS Academy Botany students curated the event. It was set up like a scavenger hunt encouraging students to read the various art posters and talk to different student speakers. Mosaic Students eagerly looked at the different parts of each piece asking various questions about the ideas presented.

The Mosaic School works together to fertilize a better community

On March 20, 2015, Rachel Gunderson[sitetree_link,id=378] and her Mosaic science students came together and put on a presentation for Sheboygan ecologist Scott Horzen, two Caan’s representatives, and UW-Madison student Owen Schneider, that demonstrated the students’ knowledge on the “Mosaic Garden” project that they would like to make happen. Whispers from the audience clearly showed interest in this idea, some stating that they have been involved since the idea was first brought up. The Mosaic School science classes created five different garden plans and then collaborated to propose one big and unique garden together that would host native plants of Wisconsin.
