The Stone Independent School
Education is not preparation for life -- education is life itself.


We believe in the transformative power of doing important work.


Or, as we say around Stone every day, we believe that culture beats strategy.

For us to build a culture that supports and incentives innovation, collaboration, feedback, and vulnerability — for us to build a culture where the work matters — we had to design a school that works a little differently than most. We don’t believe in a lot of rules, we don’t believe in top-down teaching — we believe in design-thinking, we believe in mentorship, we believe in exploration, we believe in workflow.
