ABOUT OPEN WORLD LEARNING COMMUNITY: OWL (formerly Open School) has nurtured self-directed learners for more than 40 years. Since 1971, students in our small-by-design school have been celebrated and respected for their individuality and take an active role in their education. With just over 450 students in grades 6-12, every student is a known and valued part of our family-like community. OWL is a member of the national network of Expeditionary Learning Schools, which promote rigorous and engaging curriculum; active, inquiry-based pedagogy; and a school culture that demands and teaches compassion and good citizenship.
