Our philosophy is exemplified by our logo. The hand is like those we traced when we were children. Remember cutting yours out and decorating it, and then proudly displaying it on the classroom wall or presenting it to your parents? We remember educational experiences like this one because they are active and they allow us to engage our creativity and produce something we can share with others.
The hand is brightly colored to symbolize engagement and alertness, and it leans forward to represent student activity. It points up to symbolize a student who has raised her hand to make a contribution or ask a compelling question in class, as well as the positive results that come from making the learning process more student-centered, active, visual, and fun.
The bright blue circle symbolizes the world made better by the actions of young people, as well as their own futures, enriched by meaningful experiences.
