We (parents of two children) started Flourish in June 2021. Flourish is an open, alternative, learner-driven, mixed-age school in Pune in partnership with the Acton Academy, Austin. We intend to provide a learner-driven, personalised learning experience for our children and those of other families who are looking for an educational experience fit for the 21st century.
At present, the school serves learners in grades 1-5 (ages 6-10) and will grow with them until grade 12. We are accredited with The International Association of Learner Driven Schools (IALDS) and our learners can take exams under the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), Cambridge or Maharashtra State Board of Open Schooling.
The school partners with the Acton Academy in Austin, Texas which has been running a similar school in the United States since 2008, with astounding results.
