Equity - that serves those least served by conventional schools by opening doors and creating opportunities.
Diversity - of staff and students. Inclusion of the broadest range of people and ideas.
Engagement - that taps students' natural curiosities and is differentiated, scaffolded, and playful to engage students at the intersection of rigor and joy.
Collaboration - with students and peers is kind, gracious, and expressive.
Nurturing - individual students' humanity and ethics.
Learning - that is problem-based, useful, and empowers all community members to give back.
Gotham Tech Instructional philosophy: We believe that children learn best when teaching and learning are:
