Across the nation, achievement gaps persist and poor and minority students continue to face huge academic inequities. We recognize that with the continual advancement of technology, the changing workplace, and social conditions, schools have to evolve and rethink current practices and challenge today’s paradigms.
We are a model for the next generation of schools. Working systemically and using sound, but different approaches to operating schools, we prepare students, especially poor and minority students, for a Year 2035 workplace and college.
Coperni 3 is founded on the notion that a Year 2035 workplace will require new skills and the ability to think critically.
Vision: By the Year 2035, Third Future Schools will create 100 proof points of a new education system and inspire transformation of the broader public education system in order to significantly narrow the achievement gap and prepare students for a Year 2035 workplace and world.
A team of dedicated teachers and leaders, working in a high performance and caring culture, implements wholescale reform of the education system based on different design principles. They maintain an intense focus on high quality instruction and also provide students with experiences to broaden perspective and support the growth of Year 2035 competencies. Third Future Schools holds high expectations for students and staff and believes that everyone can create their future.
