Big Picture schools
The Big Picture Education Australia aims to catalyse vital changes in Australian education by generating and sustaining innovative, personalised schools that work in tandem with their greater community.
We design break-through public schools, research and replicate new designs for education, train educators to serve as leaders in their schools and communities, and actively engage the public as participants and decision makers in the education of our youth.
Our philosophy is grounded in educating "one student at a time." We promote and create personalised education programs that are unique for each student.
We believe that true learning takes place when each student is an active participant in his or her education, when his or her course of study is personalised by teachers, parents and mentors who know him or her well, and when school-based learning is blended with outside experiences that heighten the student's interest. In a country obsessed by "test-score accountability," we promote "one student at a time accountability."
