The traditional education system, with its standardized curricula, lack of practical learning opportunities, and hierarchical structures, has been a subject of debate for decades. Digital learning tools continue to expand making it ever easier to personalize learning to the individual strengths and needs of children. As our economy continues to evolve beyond the industrial revolution that brought us public schools, many parents and educators are searching for alternative methods to better prepare today's students for the future. One such approach is the microschool—a small-scale, innovative educational model that is quickly gaining popularity. This essay will explore the benefits of microschools, focusing on their potential to revolutionize the educational landscape for WEquil Academy and beyond.

Personalized Learning

One of the most significant benefits of microschools is their ability to offer personalized learning experiences. Without the constraints of a standardized curriculum such as the Common Core, educators can more effectively tailor their instruction to the individual needs of each student. Much of these curriculums is not directly assessed in standardized tests such as the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) which focuses on reading, writing, and arithmetic. This reality gives microschools a lot of freedom to personalize learning to individuals' unique strengths and preferences without sacrificing access into higher education. Moreover, a customized approach allows students to progress at their own pace, allowing for customized support and challenges to better prepare them academically and for life more generally.
