This time we are turning education upside down. We are transforming students from passive learners to engaged citizens. We are teaching teachers to foster imagination as well as critical thinking. We are incorporating skills like innovation, perseverance and collaboration right into our curriculum. And we are developing not just minds, but our students' character as well. It's all part of 'deeper learning,' an approach to education that teaches students how to apply knowledge to the real world so that they can solve complex problems. While some schools measure education by how much information students consume, by their aptitude scores or even by the amount of homework doled out — we don't. Yes, we teach the most advanced curriculum. Yes, our students do homework. And yes, our students rank top in math, science, creative writing and Jewish studies.

That's because as the world changes, so too does our approach to education. But deeper learning goes beyond information. It demands that students learn to think analytically. To synthesize knowledge. And to develop creatively. To thrive in the years ahead, students must be curious learners, nimble thinkers and creative problem solvers. And they must live their lives with integrity, empathy and courage. Teaching the tough stuff like STEM is easy. The real challenge is helping students learn how to learn. It's what we do every day.
