Rethinking School: Who is the Whole Child in the 21st Century?

Program Overview

Join us as we gather to understand how schools should work toward preparing today’s youth for the world they live in, and one that does not yet exist.

Since 2004, Namaste Charter School has been a model for the integration of health and wellness programming—designed to integrate physical fitness, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle disciplines with rigorous academic curricula.

As we grow in our understanding of brain science, mental health, and technology, and we seek to evolve our model in response to today’s student, we recognize the imperative to rethink school.
