Welcome to the World of Micro

If you want children to run the world, you need to give them a world to run

Belief Statement

We believe in the power of kids and in their potential to do extraordinary things so much so that we challenge the status quo about who they are, what they can do, and how and from whom they learn. We help young people create their own world inside school and turn over the reins for them to manage it. We encourage them to design and manufacture products, sell them in their own marketplace of ideas, write and enforce their own laws, and along the way to grapple with the moral and ethical challenges that arise. Through the MicroSociety system, students learn the value and utility of their curriculum while making sense of their world.

Middle School Principal speaks to School Board, OK

Micro taught me to be responsible for my actions, to be responsible – period (which not many kids my age know how to do).

Ava, 8th grade, Matthew Gilbert Middle School

Micro makes you more aware of your surroundings.  Not just focusing on yourself but what other people need, what they are going through.

Laurie, 11th grade, Alumnus

Micro was huge for me and that the job is the definition of “you get out what you put in”. I know that was the case for me, and its certainly had a lasting impact on my life
