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.

First Trimester - 2014-2015


A look inside Mosaic Social Studies

In social studies, Mosaic students are learning to think like social scientists and function as active citizens. This trimester they will explore human rights in the context of different historical events. To start their exploration, students chose the area of human rights that they were most interested in, and then they were organized into groups based on those interests. The image above depicts students collaborating to develop a driving question and an idea for their trimester-long project. They will spend the rest of the year building from their own inquiry and incorporating class activities to create relevance and interpret meaning.
