At Phiolo we believe that if you do the same things, you’ll get the same results. The traditional compartmentalization of curriculum has lead or society to a road to mediocrity. In order to create tomorrow’s leaders who are passionate about learning and society we need to focus on a new set of ideas. It’s simple, at Phiolo you don’t learn to “do Math” you learn how to figure out what is cheaper, 3/$1 or $0.35 each? It may sound simple to an adult but this concept challenges the traditional ideas of how and why we learn.
For example, in traditional Social Studies you may learn about the structure of the US Government. It can teach you about who is the leader and the chain of command, but does it teach you how to be a leader? Rather than simply focus on who the leader is, Phiolo teaches students how be become leaders by teaching self control, building your will power reservoir and leading by example through group learning structures. Yes, willpower can be scientifically quantified and taught.
The world isn’t about multiplying and parsing sentences, there so much out there that once discovered adults say, “How come this stuff isn’t taught in school?” Well it is taught at Phiolo.
The curriculum base at Phiolo is completely different, focusing on subjects that will produce valuable citizens while still incorporating traditional subject matter.
