"The fact is that given the challenges we face, education doesn't need to be reformed – it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions."

Sir Ken Robinson, Creativity Expert

PHILOSOPHY

Arts at the Center

From personal experiences to the world's most pressing challenges, we thrive by solving problems. At the core of effective problem-solving is creativity, which is best cultivated through enhanced access to the arts during formative years.

In the right setting, engaging with the arts can uniquely strengthen each type of learning (visual, aural, kinesthetic), not only making students better problem-solvers but also better learners, both of which translate to any field of study or work on an evolving basis. This empowers students with more independence, options, and opportunities to make the most of their abilities to create their legacy.

CASE STUDY

How playing an instrument benefits your brain

When you listen to music, multiple areas of your brain become engaged and active. But when you actually play an instrument, that activity becomes more like a full-body brain workout. What's going on? Anita Collins explains the fireworks that go off in musicians' brains when they play, and examines some of the long-term positive effects of this mental workout. Lesson by Anita Collins, animation by Sharon Colman Graham.
