About the School:

Avalon School is located in St. Paul and serves 220 students in grades 6-12. Avalon features a curriculum built on project based-learning, public student presentations, partnerships with staff, parents, and the community, and active citizenship. Every year, students design and manage their independent projects, formally present their best projects, participate in multi-age advisories, complete service projects, and mediate conflict and solve problems through Peer Mediation and the Avalon Congress/Senate.

 

While students are empowered to lead their education and accept responsibility for the community of learners in the school, teachers at Avalon are similarly empowered. There is no principal or director, but the staff operates as leaders and shared decision-makers.  At Avalon, teachers accept greater accountability for school success—they control the curriculum, budget, professional development, and personnel decisions.
