 What is a best fit school?

A best fit school is a school where educators engage students intellectually by tapping into their specific interests and aspirations. We know that all kids are unique individuals. They engage with learning in different ways; they aspire to different careers; and they are interested in different subjects. The goal is clear: if all students can attend a high-quality, best fit school, then they will realize their full academic potential.
