We created the Flex model because there were no school models or blended models that were sufficiently flexible and personalized. The lab rotation and station rotation models were too traditional, and A La Carte was not sufficient. Virtual schools did not provide enough support.
Facilities. We found a good one but it is expensive.
Patience. It takes time to figure out all the systems. School rules and expectations need to be different from those of traditional school models.
Silicon Valley Flex Academy is a full-time, tuition-free public charter school located in Morgan Hill in Santa Clara County, serving students in grades 6–12. Silicon Valley Flex was created in order to offer students an alternative to traditional, out-dated, factory-like classrooms. At Silicon Valley Flex, a new school design, up-to-date technology, online curriculum, and extensive data empower teachers to personalize instruction and meet the needs of all students. Silicon Valley Flex students experience small class sizes, self-paced learning, and a personalized learning experience.
