What if there was a middle school where students were asked to care about how their mind works? Where students were asked to wonder out loud. Imagine a place where kids are excited to learn. What if this place allowed students to struggle and helped them view perseverance through struggle as an opportunity for growth?

There is such a place! We're excited to share our new video with you that offers a window into how this unique educational opportunity for middle schoolers in Long Beach teaches for deep understanding and makes thinking visible.
