The TBA School is a progressive, interdisciplinary 9-12 independent school which believes that all students learn best by doing. It is our mission to graduate students who are prepared for college and prepared for a world beyond college, who practice empathy, ethicality, and gratitude, and who are committed to making the world a measurably better place.

Our 2016 Essential Question:

We are asking ourselves how to assess our students via a mechanism that is ethical, that is pragmatic, that promotes wellness, and promotes a "real" love of learning.

Our Competencies and Strengths:

We are great about embracing change -- we are dynamic and forward thinking from the Board-level to the family-level, and we love the opportunity to beta-test innovation while keeping empathy, gratitude, and ethicality at the forefront of everything we do.
