Learning Environment

On the Ross campus, buildings and classrooms are intentionally and systematically designed based upon research in how students learn and how our brains develop.


The curriculum is woven into the design of spaces through the use of art and artifacts, which act as a visual and experiential text and are a core component of students’ educational experiences at Ross.

Brilliant Minds

Our school model was designed by some of the world’s most brilliant minds.

Ross School’s transformative model of education was created in collaboration with renowned experts and scholars from institutions such as Harvard and MIT. Key among those contributors are the architects of the Ross Spiral Curriculum: poet and historian William Irwin Thompson and mathematician and chaos theorist Ralph Abraham.

Dynamic Curriculum

Global Cultural History is the core of the Ross Spiral Curriculum. It is constructed as a narrative that charts the evolution of human consciousness and is taught chronologically through the grades at Ross School.


Interdisciplinarity and Integration Are Central to the Ross Model


Students integrate concepts, theories, and methods from multiple disciplines, deepening their understanding of a topic. Students acquire discipline-specific understandings and produce a synthesis across disciplines that allows them to explain concepts and solve problems of greater complexity.


Learn how integration unfolds in the classroom.

To have this perspective and mode of thinking really sheds new light onto topics that we’ve looked at in the same way for a very long time.

Ross was really the greatest factor in who I am now. There’s really no other way to put it. I’ve been places, I’ve met people, experienced things, seen technology, done things that I just never would have been exposed to. I hope that the message, the community, and the vision continue to grow and inspire people worldwide.

If Ross School was not in my life, I would be a completely different person. It taught me how to be independent; it taught me how to go after things that I believe in. I don’t think I would have had those things in my life if it wasn’t for the school.
