At Steins Pillar, students and staff share the adventure of learning. Using a quest based model, students create solutions to real-world challenges, collaborate with experts and local community members, and they learn by going off campus. We believe that learning happens everywhere: within our classroom, in our community and neighborhoods, and in the vast outdoors of our region. Steins students explore and navigate the world through authentic experiences. Students build a close-knit community both inside and outside the walls of the school.
