Frequently Asked Questions
What does a “social justice school” look and feel like?
SJS is a proof point of a true American community – racially and socioeconomically diverse, integrated, democratic, and problem-solving. In this community, students, teachers, and parents develop a passion for social justice and feel empowered to identify needs and enact change in their school, community, and the world. We believe that everyone benefits from belonging to a diverse and integrated community.
What is it like to be a student at the Social Justice School?
You will get a great education that’s aligned with the Common Core, but structured and delivered in a way you’ve never seen it before. Our experience is rooted in four pillars:
- Expeditionary Learning
- Liberatory Design Thinking
- Social Justice
