That place was pretty killer. why aren’t all high schools like this? The teachers were in authority, but they weren’t prison wardens. The students were free to share and speak freely. The classrooms looked more like workspaces at a cool start up company.
Instead of using millions of dollars to demolish the existing building to create a more traditional looking school, they built their school into the existing building, which looked like it was an old auto shop, complete with functional garage doors which separated the spaces. Just by walking into the space you could tell that it was a creative place to be.
Props to whomever came up with the initiative to start a school like that.
