Why Proof?


SCROLL DOWN

Why Proof?


 

If you're the parent of a math kid, you know the problem: your child is not challenged in school, and you go to great lengths to get what your child needs.

 

 

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.

A better way to learn


 

We focus on long-term transferrable skills, and they all add up to a love of learning.

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.

Read about our curriculum, and individual course descriptions, on our Academics page.

Our story


 

Three parents had an idea: build a school for kids who love math.

 

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.

Our admitted family event showcased a vision of a school made for and by students and families.

 

We opened our doors to admitted families before we set down our first desk or outfitted a single office. The goal was for all families to see themselves as founders of the school. To make the sense of discovery real, we ran a massive scavenger hunt that took kids to every corner of our 16,000 square foot space.
