Project 2025

Close your eyes and imagine your child as a 22-year-old college graduate. Now imagine them interviewing for their first full-time job – one that matches their interests and passions. What habits, skills, and expertise would set them apart?

Since 2014, TVS’s middle school teachers have been engaged in a group research and design project that is changing the way we think about curriculum.

At the outset, each middle school teacher identified an expert in a field outside of K-12 education to interview, asking three questions:

  • How is your field changing?
  • What skills, habits, or mindsets make people successful in your field?
  • What advice would you have for young people interested in joining your profession – what would set them apart?
