The School prepares students to understand, contribute to, and succeed in a rapidly
changing society, thus making the world a better and more just place.
We will ensure
that our students develop both the skills a sound education provides and the competencies
essential for success and leadership in the emerging creative economy.
We will also lead in generating practical and theoretical knowledge that enables people to
better understand our world and improve conditions for local and global communities.
Our vision aligns with shifts in the global economy, society, and environment, which animate
our mission and our values: Creativity, innovation, and a desire to challenge the status quo, both in what and how
we teach and in the intellectual ambitions of the school itself
Social engagement, orienting students' academic experiences to help them become critically
engaged citizens dedicated to solving problems and contributing to the public good
