The Jool sandwich
We started Jool when our founder, James Teacher, imagined taking the dizzying expectations of Deachi-dong, the heart of South Korean education, higher and taking them international. We see no limits on education and no reason why kids should be miserable. They should be in love with it and they should be far in advance of where we think they can be. To do that, we focus on two things:
1. Aim far, far higher than any other school.
2. Make every class a joy to be in.
We call it the Jool sandwich: to create a university for kids, you need joy, elite expectation, and another dash joy!
We believe in teaching 2 years ahead of private schools and international schools, ignoring tests, and letting our students soar without limits. Every single Jool class and book teaches and perfects key skills and ideas to help kids excel at UNIVERSITY, so school becomes a piece of cake. We think, act, and study like university students....just with a lot more giggling along the way.
Confident, independent learners
From class ONE, we focus on active learning. We present, discuss, debate, and learn the core Jool concept:
Who cares if you're wrong? As long as you can explain what you think, you're always right.
Incredibly high expectations and targets
We don't do tests. This means our classes are free to go beyond normal curriculums. We jump straight to the important stuff. Our 8 year olds can talk like 15 year olds and have the skills for ANY exam they come upon.
We support our students to lead and grow
We teachers are there to guide learners Socratically. We can stand and lecture kids, but true learning happens only when students are 'involved'! So, we empower students to lead while we guide.
We build polymaths - experts in a lot
Our founding idea was to create students who understand how everything fits together. We want students who can understand economics, politics, and ideas together. We want to create experts in multiple subjects, not just one.
Built for Students, by Teachers
We're teachers who've built Jool for students, not for tests or governments or gimmicks. We hire the best teachers who are GENUINELY the best. Our founder - James Teacher - teaches his own classes and always will. We observe classes constantly. We relentlessly develop them. We continuously collaborate. We improve. We aim to attract people inspired by our mission because if we're inspired, we can inspire our students. We want to build the best school in the world TOGETHER.
