We believe learning happens everywhere with immersive experiences in nature and full mentorship programs.
Our school is located in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. We partnered with Bjarke Ingels Group to create a beautiful indoor learning environment. The design starts from the premise of a school universe at the level of the child. A field of super-elliptic objects forms a learning landscape that’s dense and rational – yet free and fluid. Modular classrooms, tree houses and a vertical farm promote an inclusive and collaborative learning environment. Acoustic clouds, natural materials and neutral colors create a calm setting for the child’s focused study. Playful and transparent, yet homelike and structured, WeGrow nurtures the child’s education through introspection, exploration and discovery.
In order to create a generation of conscious global citizens who care about the planet and respect the environment, students at WeGrow spend meaningful time engaging with the planet at our Earth Lab. Our New York students spend one day per week on Staten Island where they learn how to plant and harvest crops that they sell at a student run farmstand.
WeGrow students have the unique opportunity to connect with a myriad of mentors. Through our mentorship programs, children learn from specialists across many industries in our master classes and one-on-one mentorships.
