  • Digital Quilt

    One of the most fruitful lessons of the Civil Rights Movement was that it takes everyone working together to achieve significant social change. Another was that American diversity is a strength and something to be proud of. In that spirit, FlexSchool’s Cloud Campus students came together from multiple locations around the globe to create a digital quilt commemorating the events of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States, and honoring the diverse contributions of history-makers in Black political, athletic, religious, cultural and creative communities.

  • FlexSchool Goes To Broadway!

    Last week, FlexSchool students were invited to embark on a special multi-campus field trip, making the journey by train to New York City to witness the enchanting Broadway musical "How to Dance in Ohio." This thought-provoking production, which stars seven autistic actors, explores the universal themes of self-discovery, acceptance, and the joy of embracing life's challenges. Here’s what some of our students had to say about the experience:
    • "I liked it a lot."
    • "It was incredible!"
    • "I'm sad that it's not continuing on Broadway for longer."
    • "Favorite musical ever. I loved it! It is good for the public to see a musical about autism."
    • "I really like that the actors were really nice after the show when we got to meet them. I also liked how they represented some different traits of autism and mentioned that there are many more."
    • "I felt very seen."

  • FlexSchool Core Values In Action At Bronxville

    FlexSchool Bronxville has been learning about the current housing crisis in New York City. Over 100,000 people are seeking temporary shelter, and many are refugees of the climate crisis. Our community came together to respond, collecting several boxes of nonperishable foods, and over 40 items of winter clothing like coats, hats, and sweaters. On top of that, Haleigh's Cooking Up History class made 52 bagged lunches to distribute, using ingredients that were generously donated by Geoffrey Fischer, a chef and FlexSchool parent. All donated goods are being dispersed at emergency shelters throughout the Bronx and Manhattan. The winter clothing and food drive will continue through the cold weather, and we are especially looking for boots and socks right now. The FlexSchool community is doing our best to live our values of respect and exploring the interconnectedness of all people.

  • ADDitude Features New Article by FlexSchool's Kasey Suitor

    We are thrilled to share that another wonderful article by Cloud campus learning specialist and teacher Kasey Suitor is featured in ADDitude: The True Value of ADHD Side Quests, Rabbit Holes, and Tangents. Kasey writes, “Side quests, I say, are not wasteful. Even within video games, you can earn rewards for playing side quests and gain skills that eventually aid in completing the main quest. If you shut off the game after finishing a handful of side quests, without so much as attempting the main quest, you would still consider it a success, if not a good time.”
