Model/philosophy: Joule is a school designed by a nine-year-old gifted kid. (You can read this story on the school’s website.) Students don’t sit still and don’t do worksheets. Classes are fun, usually involve singing about what the students are learning, and take place outside whenever possible. Classes are multi-age groups with flexible pacing, so students are able to advance whenever they are ready, rather than waiting until the end of the year.
Special features: Year-round school. Electives include French, Spanish, Latin, piano, typing/programming, and gardening. The school day is split between time with an instructor (completely hands-on) and independent work time. Many different areas of study are available, such as pottery, sewing, entrepreneurship, and cooking.
