Schools in the rural North Carolina community of Edgecombe County have historically lagged behind on test scores and other metrics. The community decided it was time for something radically different: to build a new school from the ground up. They wanted a school specifically designed with students in mind that was informed by local and global education trends as well as the science of learning and development.
Edgecombe County Public Schools partnered with Transcend to embark on an innovation journey. This is the story of their partnership and how the two organizations are collaborating to prepare the young people of Edgecombe County for success in a rapidly changing world.
