A Sneak Peak at Avenues: The World School

CER President Jeanne Allen recently visited Avenues: The World School, which is an innovative new school opening its doors this fall in New York City. The New York campus is the flagship in a planned global network of schools with a unique mission to promote and nurture global preparedness. Pledging to “set an example as an effective, diverse, and accountable school,” Avenues’ rigorous curriculum and forward thinking operational philosophy is designed to prepare kids to be successful, responsible, well-rounded, and ethical citizens of the global community, who will have access to any international campus in the Avenues family. The faculty and administrative leaders are virtually a who’s who in rigorous education programs – including founder and entrepreneur Chris Whittle who met with Allen during her visit and gave her a tour of the top-notch facilities.
