We (parents of two lovely children – ages six and one) are starting the Flourish School in June 2020 in Pune, India. 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.
The school will initially start for children in grades 1-4 and grow with them until grade 12. We do not plan to affiliate with any education board – although our students will have the option to take exams under the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), Cambridge or Maharashtra State Board of Open Schooling.
The school is being started in partnership with the Acton Academy in Austin, Texas which has been running a similar school in the United States since 2008, with astounding results.
