At The Mount Vernon School, we strive to design a better world. We believe that empathy influences learning, and that learners of all ages can apply knowledge to make an impact. Therefore, we set conditions for our faculty, staff and students to engage with real-world work as the work of school.
Through design thinking; project-based learning; and maker, design and engineering efforts, our learners engage with their community in order to inquire and innovate. We’ve designed prosthetic hands with 3D printers, created bio-engineering solutions to some of medicine’s greatest challenges, offered consulting from high school students to some of the biggest brands in Atlanta, and drafted digital blueprints for a commercial development park. This learning naturally integrates science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
When young learners believe they can make a positive difference now, they become more motivated, engaged and committed to their learning. This empowers our students to prepare for their future by designing a better world today.
