The High School For The World

School of Humanity

location_on Dubai, United Arab Emirates
School of Humanity is an online-first high school with an interdisciplinary curriculum and progressive learning model. The mode equips learners with the competencies, mindsets, and behaviors needed to flourish and contribute to human progress. The education reimagines what, how, why and where learning happens.
- Raya Bidshahri, Founder & CEO
We sought to create a learning experience that learners across the planet would genuinely love, parents would distinctly value, top universities would prioritize and future employers would appreciate.

about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

The future of humanity depends on how well we prepare future generations to be active stewards and engaged, caring citizens. These intentions are largely ignored by traditional education systems. School of Humanity exists to deliver those outcomes and to serve as a role model for other institutions realizing their greater responsibility for human progress.

How does your innovation work in practice?

We redesigned the High School experience in order to better serve humanity and learners globally. Our model and curriculum are:

Curiosity-driven: Learners choose their own mission through a variety of learning paths that are personalized to them. These include various Challenge, Skill & Career paths.

Interdisciplinary: Learners meet varied and exciting curriculum outcomes by embarking on interdisciplinary learning paths.

Competency-based: Learners progress through the curriculum based on ability, not age. We allow them to move at a pace that works best for them.

Flexible Schedules: Combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning providing learners with balance and time for creative flow.

While our model is online-first, we are also launching hybrid programs and cohorts in select cities globally.

How has it been spreading?

Since our launch in May 2021, we have:
- Received registrations of interest from families in over 15 countries
- Enrolled 70 learners from 9 countries, and are growing to 100 learners in January 2022.
- Established partnerships with foundations, curriculum and universities.
- Grown a team of incredible mentors, facilitators, and leaders which you can learn more about here
