Our Mission

The mission of We the People High School is to empower the next generation of leaders with the knowledge, practice, and tools to radically change the world for the better. We want our graduates to become powerful global citizens.

Our Purpose

The motto of We the People is envision, design, create a better world. At We the People, students work on grand challenges that we face in the 21st century, such as climate change, inequality, poverty, and sustainable cities. Our youth need and deserve an education that prepares them to act and think locally and globally, and to collaborate capably. In fact, youth around the country and the world are already taking action to create a better world.

Why Did We Start This School?

Students see how injustice and inequality play out in their own communities, families and schools every day. Our democracy depends on public schools graduating citizens with the skills, knowledge, and tools to upend systemic inequality and create a sustainable planet for our shared future. 

Our graduates will value diverse perspectives, know how to collaborate, and know how to persist in the face of challenge. Our graduates will go on to college and careers in government, policy, environmentalism, law, media, education, journalism – all of the institutions that hold us together as a nation. Our graduates will be equipped to forge connections and solve problems across all sectors because they’ve practiced doing so during high school.
