Based in California, AltSchool is a fast-growing chain of schools with locations throughout San Francisco, as well as a new campus in Brooklyn, New York, set to open in the 2015-2016 school year. They are a revolutionary community of independent micro-schools rewriting education from the ground up with a keen focus on personalized learning.
AltSchool is devoted to providing a tailored education to its students; it’s founder, Max Ventilla, decided to start AltSchool when he himself was overwhelmed at the lack of user-friendliness in the entire process of arranging school for his own children. He identified a lack of personalization and child service in any of the schools that he assessed. With all of the technology available today, it was astonishing to him that technology wasn’t being used to improve the lives of our children. AltSchool plans to change all this, and is already off to an amazing start.
