Personalized learning is a philosophy that seeks to provide educational experiences for students tailored to their unique characteristics. This usually manifests on the academic side with students working on individualized pathways. At Distinctive Schools, the academic side was the entry point for our personalized learning journey. But for students to have a truly individualized experience, this system has to become a part of the non-academic parts of their schooling as well. Based on this, our schools have shifted to adopt a restorative justice model.
