Open Mind School, Bay Area
Open Mind School is a private K-12 lab school in pursuit of high-quality research on learning.
Students are passionate learners and we encourage their leadership and partnership in their educational journey.
That's why when a student wants to take notes by drawing pictures, we hand them a sketchbook. If a student wants to start a small business to raise money for Save the Whales, we put together a team of learning guides to collaborate. And when a student wanted to learn while feeling the calmness of the pool, we printed lesson plans on waterproof paper.
OMS is a community school that holds classes throughout the Bay Area. Our students can be found taking their Robotics class at Microsoft in Palo Alto, swimming at the pools at the Bay Club, hanging at the cafeteria at Menlo College, and learning in a flexible environment that encourages global citizenship and community collaboration.
We have crafted a comprehensive distance learning program in response to covid-19. Content specialists teach grade level instruction and follow California state standards.
