Mission

Portfolio School actively engages students in intellectual inquiry and creative design. Immersed in collaborative, interdisciplinary project-based learning, high quality academics, and thoughtful self-reflection, Portfolio students delve into the sciences and humanities, literature and math, technology and the arts, not just as memorizers, but as thinkers and creators.

Engaging in deep learning with curiosity and passion, Portfolio students develop the abilities, insights, and qualities of character needed to thrive in the ever changing, technological, entrepreneurial and global world.

Thanks to Portfolio’s amazing teachers and approach, our son has regained interest in his strong subjects while also discovering a new passion for reading, writing and filmmaking. He is also becoming more independent, persistent and thoughtful, all the while absolutely loving going to school!
— Elena, Portfolio parent
Portfolio has discovered the way to celebrate and uplift the naturally creative, inquisitive mind of a child. I want my children to be a part of this innovative education model that readies children for the 21st Century job market.
— Georgia, Portfolio parent
Portfolio School is redefining what is possible in K-12 education. By creating an environment not only emphasizing what students know, but more significantly what students can do with what they know, Portfolio is preparing its students to succeed and create a positive impact in the rapidly changing technological, entrepreneurial, and global world they are inheriting.
— Tony Wagner, Harvard University
Portfolio School is taking Project Based Learning and Constructivism to the next level by identifying a key feature of student success – relationships. Their small school mixed-grade environment creates the ideal conditions for these positive student-student and student-teacher relationships to develop.
— Scott Swaaley, Founder, GRITLab @ The Gary and Jerri-Ann Jacobs High Tech High

WATCH TRAILER

Most Likely To Succeed is the best film ever done on the topic of school — both its past and its future. The film inspires its audiences with a sense of purpose and possibility, and is bringing school communities together in re-imagining what our students and teachers are capable of doing. After seeing this film, you’ll never look at school the same way again.

"The 21st century is going to be all about building, creating, and innovating. This remarkable film shows a path of how we can empower all of our children to do that."
Sal Khan, Khan Academy

Dinner and drinks will be served.
Tickets are $12 ahead of time / $20 at the door
