The Future

The intention of this organization is to open us a conversation on how to transform our national standards on education to make them individualized, creative, and self expressed.

our mission

The arts are an integral part of a creative and self-expressed learning system and need to be seen as such throughout our education system.  The Uncommon Core is a project that showcases how the arts can be used to comprehensively teach all other subjects in a way that brings the standards to life for the students, teachers, and parents.


With a team of current and future educators, we are creating a database of lesson plans that can be referenced to teach Common Core standards in a very uncommon way.
