Avenues: The World School was founded in 2010 with the vision to establish one school with many campuses that are intentionally connected and interdependent, located in leading global cities. Avenues is one highly integrated learning community, supported by a common mission, a shared education design and curriculum, world-class technology and a talented headquarters team in New York City. Through this effort, Avenues is helping to define a new category of school—a world school.
School is about learning useful habits of mind, and Avenues teaches many of those. Our students will develop to be confident players on a world stage, proficient in more than one language, prepared for academic achievement and with a special capacity to engage in independent exploration and study.
School is also about learning important habits of the heart, and these are some of the most important lessons in life. Our students will find friends, both in their neighborhood and all over the world. They will learn to overcome barriers of language and geography and enjoy service that benefits others. They will develop confidence in their own strengths and learn to challenge themselves. And they will develop the values to help live your life as a happy and productive citizen of our world.
Setting forth on this journey is exhilarating. Welcome to Avenues!
