WHY DA VINCI?
Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions a family will make. It's important to take your time and find the school that best suits your family and your child's individual needs, learning style, interests, strengths, challenges, and potential career interests.
There are many reasons why you should choose Da Vinci Schools:
Da Vinci Schools are college-preparatory, public charter schools. Every high school student takes college-prep classes that meet the California state content standards and exceed the eligibility requirements for admission to the UC and CSU campuses. Every student who graduates from Da Vinci Schools will graduate college-ready, career-prepared, and community-minded.
You love to solve problems.
You want to take responsibility for your own learning.
You prefer a small school environment with a strong sense of community.
Da Vinci Schools are small schools. When they are fully enrolled, each high school will have about 500 students. Our small school size provides teachers and students with the opportunity to really know each other. Many of our teachers prefer to be identified by their first names. Our students and staff eat together and share the same workspace. Our community is very diverse and welcoming.
You want to get a head start on your college education.
You want to be part of something innovative.
Da Vinci Schools are innovative, award-winning schools. We model an educational philosophy that Bill Gates and many other leading education reformers follow -- the new 3-R's of education -- rigor, relevance and relationships. We engage students in real-world projects that interest them and prepare them with the authentic skill sets they need for real-world readiness. We collaborate and work in teams that mirror the workplace. We have strong community partners who help us identify the 21st century skills that students need to know that do not appear in the California state standards. Our students participate in job shadows in the 10th grade, internships in the 11th grade, and complete a year-long senior project in the 12th grade. Every student goes on yearly college field trips beginning in the 9th grade to experience college life first-hand. We think students today need a lot more than just core academic subjects. We are committed to ensuring that every Da Vinci student graduates with the knowledge, skills, confidence and compassion needed for success in college and the 21st century global workforce.
