What we have to say about NEXT is NOW

  • Our mission has been to cultivate “Innovation Intelligence” — the combination of technical and social skills students need to become active co-creators, shape their environments and take charge of their future learning.

    Alonzo Edmundo
  • We believe there is no box… not out the box, but “There Is No Box!” to realize the box is to perceive limitations, and we see ourselves limitless and full of infinite potential.

  • Nunc velit risus, dapibus non interdum quis, suscipit nec dolor. Vivamus tempor tempus mauris vitae fermentum. In vitae nulla lacus. Sed sagittis tortor vel arcu sollicitudin nec tincidunt metus suscipit.
