At Proof School, all that changes. Our curriculum is designed not only to enliven kids who love math but also to challenge them.
Our biggest draw is social: kids who love math come together every day to be with like-minded peers, all guided by world-class teachers. We feature small classes based on skills, abilities, and experiences, not just age.
Classrooms transform the learning experience, and they also physically transform throughout the day: the art studio doubles as a physics lab, a literature seminar becomes a presentation space, and every afternoon, the entire campus turns into seminar rooms for mathematics.

It's not just math that defines Proof School. It's also the way our classrooms work. Our morning courses focus on four learning modes: reading and writing, listening and speaking, experimenting and practicing, and making and doing. We believe deep learning happens through actions and activities, whether that's doing "homework" right in class or talking with our hands.
Our faculty members teach using best-practices in inquiry-based learning, design thinking, project management, and social and emotional intelligence. Creative projects across the curriculum help students see themselves as authors and makers.

We're not just a "math school." We're a full-fledged school for kids who love math.
Our story began in 2013, when two parents watched how animated and focused their kids were during a math circle. The kids were intellectually challenged and socially connected. They turned to each other and asked: why can't it be like this every day?
We've been working ever since to build a school that truly serves kids who love math. See who works to make the classroom experience transformative for each student.
