Education expert Dr. Monica Martinez has featured Avalon School in a new book released in June. Martinez’s book, Deeper Learning: How Eight Innovative Public Schools Are Transforming Education in the Twenty-First Century, profiles eight schools for their work in the Deeper Learning movement, which stresses mastery of essential content, self-direction, collaboration, critical thinking, effective communication and problem-solving skills.

Opened in 2001, Avalon School has been part of the Deeper Learning movement and has strived to create a collaborative school environment that includes project-based learning, peer mediation and school governance through congress. For more information on Avalon School visit
