FOR EVERY CLASSROOM TO BE A MOONSHOT CLASSROOM.

_

WHAT IS A MOONSHOT CLASSROOM?

A moonshot classroom is a fundamental shift to give students more autonomy and agency in the classroom and entrusts them with greater ownership of their learning outcomes. While teachers still play an integral role, their core purpose has evolved from ‘sage on the stage’ to ‘master coach’ of each student's development.

Our Values.

The foundation of a moonshot classroom is a set of collective values cultivated by teachers and students alike. We believe in a classroom culture of Trust, Respect, Independence, Collaboration and Kindness.

Educators face a directive today of preparing students for a future of work that is rapidly changing. We ought to move away from simply teaching content to guiding students on how to build skills and apply their knowledge in meaningful ways.

Student Agency

Students should be the drivers of their own education. The role of the teacher is guiding, curating, and supporting.

Real World Work

Students must produce learning projects with real world applications and an authentic audience.

Mastery-based

Students must work to meet expectations and learning standards, as opposed to earning grades. Learning for improvement and growth not peer competition and points.

Passion-building

Esther Wojcicki, a trailblazer in her own right, first went one-on-one with Macintosh computers in 1985 through a grant from the State of California. Now, her journalism program at Palo Alto High School is regarded as the best in the United States and has more than 600 students. Many former students from her program have gone on to have an outsized impact on the world including Gady Epstein of the Economist, Noah Sneider of the New York Times, actor James Franco, and Tod Scacerdoti of Yahoo, to name a few.
