What is a microschool?

A microschool is a small, independent educational setting that offers a personalized approach to education with individualized instruction that can be tailored to each student’s learning style, strengths, and weaknesses. Microschools often use project-based learning and other innovative teaching methods to engage students and foster a love of learning, and can be a good option for families who want more control over their children’s education or for students who need more individualized attention.

Creating change

At the Eyes and Brains STEM Center, students receive so much more than an ordinary education. Students and families are also welcomed into a dynamic and supportive community.

A Word

From Eric Eisenbrey

I taught in public schools for 10 years. Having seen how the needs of so many students were not being met in the public school system, I set out to create something better.

I believe that every child deserves a high-quality education that meets their unique needs and helps them reach their full potential. Microschools provide an alternative to the traditional one-size-fits-all approach to education, allowing students to learn in a small, supportive environment that is tailored to their individual needs. By creating a microschool, I hope to provide a better educational experience for my students and help them achieve academic success.

A school that customizes learning for all ages

Students of various ages will come together to share and plan out their day.

Learning will not be a rush from one narrow idea to the next, but fit to each student’s needs.

Members of the school will value the differences and learning of all.

Students learn individual responsibility and shared ownership

Students will take individual responsibility for learning.

Students will have a shared voice in the school community.

Students will take responsibility for the cleaning and care of the school space.

A microschool that goes beyond testing

Students will prove their learning through the production of projects.

Parents can choose to have students take a state standardized test or have a portfolio prepared.

We invite you to keep exploring!
