At the heart of every great human invention, discovery, innovation, political movement, artistic masterpiece, or even break-through business model, we find evidence of empathy.

What is it like to imagine oneself in another’s shoes? What do others want, need, desire, and aspire to? From the moment children begin their journey at Blue School, we work with them on developing empathy. We do this through active conversation, classroom discussion, and intentional conflict resolution. The ability to grasp the many sides of today’s complex problems and the capacity to collaborate towards a common goal means listening to others and articulating your own perspective. This is a core aspect of our balanced approach.
