According to the latest TED Talk clip, the CHESS Christian School's core values of Contagious Learning and Community are essential to successful innovation in the next generation.


“[Traditional educational models] feel like they’re trying to make you memorize the whole encyclopedia before they let you go out and play, and to me, I’ve got Wikipedia on my cell phone, and it feels like they assume you’re going to be on top of some mountain, all by yourself with a number 2 pencil trying to figure out what to do when in fact you’re always going to be connected, you’re always going to have friends,and you can pull Wikipedia up whenever you need it, and what you need to learn is how to learn.”
