we believe that everyone learns best by doing.
And that's why our students will never have to ask when they'll ever "need to know this".
We began building the Stone Independent School in the summer of 2015 with one core belief: that everyone learns best by doing. And that's why we've built a 9-12 progressive curriculum intent on getting our students up from their desks and out into the world as quickly as possible. Our students will be asked to solve complex, inter-disciplinary problems with support from their teachers and mentors, they will be asked to build our community and our values, and they will be asked to design their own curriculum as they move deeper toward their true passions and true selves.
