At Odyssey Charter School in Altadena, a community close to Pasadena, CA, progressive education manifests in a cohesive workshop climate set in multiage classrooms. These two components speak to the heart of the school’s mission. A K-8 school for 420 students, I saw an engaging activity-based program in one of the most diverse communities one will ever encounter. Children from a wide range of socio-economic, racial and cultural backgrounds come together each day with a passionate group of teachers on a very attractive six-acre campus.
