Odyssey Charter School
The mission of Odyssey Charter School (Odyssey) is to create a self-motivated, socially responsible life-long learner. This is achieved by creating an active and engaging multiage learning environment that is committed to academic excellence – one that goes far beyond the walls of the traditional classroom, into a broad-based partnership with parents and the wider community. Project-based teaching, constructivist strategies, curricula based on Howard Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences, Daniel Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence and Harvard’s Thinking for Understanding Framework all combine with service learning and community collaborations to cultivate understanding and creativity. Together, they provide students with transferable real-world skills and understanding – the tools and values they need for their own emotional well-being and to be socially responsible in a rapidly changing global community.
