Who They Are
Their founding team includes many leaders and original members of School of One, New York City’s award-winning personalized educational program that was named one of the Top 50 Inventions of 2009 by TIME.
In 2011, New Classrooms formed as an independent, non-profit organization in order to bring personalized learning to more students across the country. Teach to One: Math is New Classrooms’ flagship school-based learning model.
From School of One to Teach to One
New Classrooms was founded by many members of the team that created School of One, an initiative incubated within the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) in 2009. Co-Founders Joel Rose and Chris Rush launched School of One to determine whether it was possible to design a school-based learning model that integrated live, online, and collaborative learning in ways that met the unique needs of each learner each day.
School of One and Teach to One
School of One continues to operate in NYC, where schools, teachers, and parents know it by that name. Those outside of NYC call the model Teach to One: Math. Despite the difference in names, the programs function identically.
They imagine a world where personalized learning is just the way students learn—a world where all students attend a school that meets them where they are, adapts to the unique ways they learn, and develops habits for lifelong success.
