New Classrooms

Our founding team includes many leaders and original members of School of One, New York City’s award-winning personalized educational program that was named one of the Top 50 Inventions of 2009 by TIME.
In 2011, New Classrooms formed as an independent, non-profit organization in order to bring personalized learning to more students across the country. Teach to One: Mathis New Classrooms’ flagship school-based learning model.

New Classrooms was founded by many members of the team that created School of One, an initiative incubated within the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) in 2009. Co-Founders Joel Rose and Chris Rush launched School of One to determine whether it was possible to design a school-based learning model that integrated live, online, and collaborative learning in ways that met the unique needs of each learner each day.
