Millions of students struggle to stay engaged. While traditional curriculums are often one-size-fits-all, Tulsa Public School district is taking a new approach, equipping students with tools to achieve success in and out of the classroom. 

Beyond critical academic foundational skills, this initiative is allowing students to discover their own passions after school hours, which can lead to greater engagement with coursework and more confidence in social settings. 

By helping students find their unique niches, Tulsa Public Schools is empowering them to draw connections from their studies to personal interests, creating better learners.
