About Us

Here at Uncommon Core we’re working hard to meet the educational needs of today’s students by designing lessons to help them overcome the increasingly complex challenges of college and career. We want our students to become self-directed, open-minded, discerning learners, with the necessary skills to meet the demands of a fast-paced, diverse world. Although we emphasize focused instruction of standards-based material, at Uncommon Core we realize that our students learn best through a variety of teaching methods that help them engage with that material. Our goal is to produce a generation of students who can meet common standards in a way that honors their unique perspectives and talents.
