Professor Yong Zhao Visits TSS

"I am very impressed with The Studio School as a great example of making schools human institutions that respect students as equal human beings and support them as self-determined learners.”

These were the words of internationally renowned education transformer, Professor Yong Zhao, when he visited our campus recently.

Prof. Zhao spent time exploring the bustling campus and meeting with TSS students, hearing first-hand from our passionate students about their educational journeys, their individual and community projects, their courses, their aspirations, and the exciting futures they are building at TSS.

When a TSS student asked Yong what his 'dream school' looked like, he replied, “This!”.

Prof. Zhao said, "I have visited many schools and this campus, this school is truly exemplary."

After meeting with our students Prof. Zhao then delivered a workshop for educators from schools across the city.

Yong has been with us along the years-long journey of imagining TSS and we were delighted that he was finally able to see it in action.
