About the Workshop

The mission of the Workshop School is to unleash the creative and intellectual potential of young people to solve the world’s toughest problems. We do this by putting real world problems at the center of the curriculum, and evaluating students’ work based on the progress they make in defining, exploring, and ultimately developing solutions to those problems. We create a culture that fosters creativity, risk-taking, and responsibility for self and others. And we help students understand that setbacks are a necessary part of doing challenging work, and that the most important thing is to learn from them and press on.
