Bernard Bull: Acton is a truly inspiring and exceptional school.

Education innovation scholar Bernard Bull recently reviewed Courage to Grow: How Acton Academy Turns Learning Upside Down, the new book by Laura Sandefer, cofounder of the first Acton Academy. Bull writes:

“I’ve visited and studied hundreds of innovative models of schooling over the past decade, and Acton continues to be one of the most promising models. From their grounding the vision of the school in the metaphor of the Hero’s Journey to their humane and mission-inspired approach to assessment, their distinct and compelling vision for what it means to be a learner-driven community to their wonderfully reflective and emergent approach to nurturing a rich and compassionate community, Acton is a truly inspiring and exceptional school.”
