We’re known for our rigorous, unique, and adaptable academic programming, experiential learning opportunities, academic and industry partnerships, and commitment to research, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

While our pedagogical mission is to prepare our students for professional excellence in design and business, our broader ethos is to foster creativity, inspire leadership, impart a global perspective, and educate students to embrace inclusiveness, commit to sustainability, and engage with community. We encourage students, scholars, teachers, and industry colleagues to cross traditional boundaries of both geography and disciplines. Together we strive to develop innovative design and strategic business solutions that will upend the status quo, create personal and professional opportunity, and have a lasting and sustainable global impact.

Stanford Design School

Stanford is one of the principal educational institutions driving the paradigm shift in the design field today. We teach Design Thinking and innovation methodologies aimed at creating highly leveraged graduates who, acting as change agents, tackle the “wicked problems” of sustainability, renewable energy, technology futures, design-driven behavior change and organizational transformation. Our highly immersive program starts with creative transdisciplinary individuals, and adds unique design methodologies, a hands-on approach, a depth in design thinking, and a rigorous approach to problem solving to produce extraordinary results. Our processes drive a clear distinction between "doing the right thing" and "doing things right". We focus on creating the ability to manage the simultaneous combination of high-level strategic thinking and tangible solution creation, be it products, services or experiences, that have a high impact on human lives. This duality is evidenced in the diversity and complexity of the unique, self-directed Thesis projects that students tackle during their second year in the Program.

Art History is a discipline that strives to understand works of art, architecture and design from a variety of perspectives, including the original context of their making and reception as well as their subsequent circulation, collection, conservation, and display.  As culturally embedded expressions, works of art may yield multiple meanings depending on the kinds of research and interpretive strategies that art historians bring into play.  These might include consultation of original archives, philosophical and critical discourses, as well as research into social history or formal analysis.

It qualified for full accreditation as a degree-granting institution by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools on December 11, 1979.

StudentsReview was founded in 2000 from the belief that students should have access to more complete information regarding one of the most important (and expensive) decisions they'll ever make.

From that day, StudentsReview has grown to have over 125,000 student reviews of 3,359 schools. We have servers across the globe in Europe, Asia and the United States. 

If we were to believe every pamphlet, brochure and email sent to prospective students, all students will attend the safest, most beautiful, academically challenging and fun school on the planet, regardless of what school it is. (smile) But we all know that can't be true, but how does a prospective student find out what is?

We know how, because that's where StudentsReview lives. To get students that information, we collect, compile, analyze and disseminate reviews of public and private universities, colleges and trade schools. We send them out uncensored because, Students Know Best.

High School of Art and Design

The High School of Art and Design is a New York City Career and Technical Education high school. Founded in 1936 as the School of Industrial Art, the school moved to its 56th Street Sutton Place location in September 2012. High School of Art and Design is operated by the New York City Department of Education.

For over seventy years, Art and Design High School has nurtured talented students through its extensive art program to become accomplished professionals. Located in the heart of New York City’s cultural center, we are a community of scholars dedicated to fostering the creative and academic talents of each of our gifted art students. We are nationally known for our design programs in architecture, fashion design, graphic design, illustration and digital photography and video technology. Graduates from our school are leaders in the field of art and the community at large.

 We are journalists, public school parents, and public school advocates dedicated to improving schools for our own children and for every child in the city. We believe that engaged, informed parents can promote racially and economically integrated schools of the highest quality. Furthermore, we believe that excellent public education is crucial to the functioning of a democratic society.

We provide authoritative independent information about New York City's public schools. We want to tell you what's really going on, because test scores don't tell the whole story. We visit hundreds of schools each year and interview thousands of people—principals, teachers, students and parents. We observe what’s happening in the classrooms, cafeterias, hallways and even the bathrooms.

Insideschools is a project of the Center for New York City Affairs at The New School and is supported by grants from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the David L. Klein Jr. Foundation, the New York Community Trust and the New York City Council Speaker’s Initiative. We are also supported by reader donations, and advertising revenue.
