Description: Learn more about the Manhattan Free School's revolutionary educational paradigm, which places a greater value on choice than control, on voice than silence, on age-integration than age-segregation. Students are empowered to make decisions concerning their own learning and their school community. Students and staff come together to make decisions on matters as important as arrival time, diploma requirements, and staff hiring. There are no grades, tests, or homework. Because students design their individual educational path, classes develop around student interest, with advisors to assist them as desired.
