I enjoyed the book thoroughly…as it not only motivated me and inspired me for my own task at hand…but it emboldened me to believe in my vision and to continue to pursue the fulfilling of that dream.Is it possible to create a place where people treat each other with dignity and respect and at the same time they soar academically? At Corbett Preparatory School of IDS, that dream emerges every day in an effort to make that possibility come true. Just imagine a world of teachers and children trying to live “above the line” working to respect one another on an ongoing basis. Just imagine people working together to create a joyful, brain-friendly environment that purposely combines the best of academics with social, emotional, and physical well-being.

It's All About KidsThe Foreword describes why the book was written.

The Prologue describes a quantum leap from the past to the present, linking a flat-earth versus round-earth mentality leading to possibilities affecting schools and education today.

Part I uses a story format to tell the rich and diverse history of the evolution of a little school always trying to make a HUGE difference in the big world.

Part II describes how the philosophy translates into action through a reliance on leading-edge brain research and best practices in education. The development and explanation of the M.O.R.E. Approach (Multiple Options for Results in Education) for training and learning is also described in this section.

Part III highlights teachers, their stories, and an “abundance mentality” of ideas that arise from planning lessons, which are consistently vibrant and exciting, and at the same time balanced with comfort, connections, and tradition.

Part IV captures a snapshot of the school through a variety of press releases that shed light on the myriad of opportunities that create an enviable context for learning.

The A+ Action Approach to Leadership and Change weaves the seven components of an action plan throughout the book. These components can guide schools on the journey to discover the Cape of ExtraordinaryLearning.
