School Without Walls
"Where Learning Has No Limits!"
We are glad you found us! Just a little bit about us:
We are one of the oldest alternative schools in the country.
All curriculum, courses, and student experiences at School Without Walls are planned, developed, and implemented with the clear intention of helping students become self-sufficient lifelong learners.
We are a learner centered school. Our students participate in interdisciplinary classes with project based curricula. We use the community as a base and resource for our work. Our students have individual academic teacher-advisors and are involved in school governance. Graduation requirements include completion of portfolios and Senior projects instead of standardized testing requirements.
We welcome visitors and people who want to become part of our learning community.
Call us at 585-546-6732 or visit at 480 Broadway, Rochester, NY 14607
