A NEW SCHOOL OF THOUGHT
One school with many campuses, providing transformative, world-focused learning experiences to students around the globe.
MISSION – What Draws So Many Parents, Students and Teachers to Avenues
Through the pursuit of our mission, Avenues prepares students to be future world-wise leaders uniquely equipped to understand and solve global-scale problems. “We will graduate students who are accomplished in the academic skills one would expect; at ease beyond their borders; truly fluent in a second language; good writers and speakers one and all; confident because they excel in a particular passion; artists no matter their field; practical in the ways of the world; emotionally unafraid and physically fit; humble about their gifts and generous of spirit; trustworthy; aware that their behavior makes a difference in our ecosystem; great leaders when they can be, good followers when they should be; on their way to well-chosen higher education; and, most importantly, architects of lives that transcend the ordinary.”

CAMPUSES – Global in Scope, Local in Focus
Avenues is one school with many campuses, serving children from ages 2 to 18 in the world’s leading cities, including New York, São Paulo, Shenzhen and Online. This is not a collection of different schools all pursuing different educational strategies, but rather one highly integrated and global learning community, connected and supported by a common vision, a shared curriculum, global admissions standards, collective professional development of its faculty and best-in-class facilities. Supported by a global headquarters in New York, all of our campuses are Avenues in substance as well as form, simultaneously interconnected and deeply rooted in their own communities and countries. As a world school, Avenues is committed to serving local families in each of its campus communities. Avenues is currently developing campuses in Europe, North America and Asia. With our global admissions policy, a student admitted to one Avenues campus is admitted to all of them.
全球校区 – 放眼全球、根植本土
FACULTY – Our Teachers Are Driven
Avenues is defined by its faculty: diverse, globally-minded and united around a common mission. Our teachers are not only experienced educators—they are also fearless dreamers and passionate change makers. They are ambitious, idealistic, and driven by a desire to make a practical difference to the lives of students—not only in their classrooms but across the world. Collaboration among faculty is woven into the fabric of our educational design—from the pairing of English and target language teachers in our immersion program, to the interdisciplinary cross-pollination of subjects in co-taught Fifth Term courses. True to the DNA of Avenues: The World School, every one of our teachers brings global awareness and engagement into the classroom—from discussing school policies with Avenues peers in São Paulo via video conference to taking non-Western-centric approaches to history in the World Course. With precious freedom to design their own courses and support from the R&D department to implement new pedagogies, our teachers are blazing trails in the field of education.

LEARNING INNOVATION – Redefining Education, One Discovery at A Time
Avenues’ in-house R&D department is dedicated to finding more effective ways to educate and equip students for a future that we cannot yet imagine. Operating out of our global headquarters in New York, Avenues’ in-house R&D department exists to perform cutting-edge educational research, foster the development of innovative programs and provide support to our faculty—while furthering the cause of education around the world. The scope of the R&D department’s research is broad, from project-based assessment to the role of empathy in learning, from optimizing Mandarin immersion for young learners to defining Avenues’ architectural standards for campuses around the world. Developed by our R&D department over several years, the Avenues World Elements (AWE) articulates the essential and enduring learning outcomes for graduates of Avenues: The World School across all our campuses. This unique curricular system is designed to be modular, allowing for inventive interdisciplinary combinations and campus-level localization. In addition, all Avenues campuses have dedicated technology integration teams staffed by expert educators trained in the use of technology in the classroom. Supporting students in grades 6-12, Avenues Online uses a unique and proprietary learning platform to provide an Avenues education to students whose circumstances have placed them in diverse global locations. Wherever there is an Internet connection, there is Avenues Online. The Avenues Mastery Academy, intensive project-based learning experiences for high school students in cities around the world, provide students with an opportunity to pursue site-specific interdisciplinary projects with guidance from expert practitioners.
