Reviews

Courtney Ross and I are co-workers in the vineyard of the education of the young. I was inspired when I visited the Ross School years ago. In my own work in founding the now 20-years-old Illinois Math and Science Academy (IMSA), I appreciated the unique qualities of Ross. The Ross School model is clearly a profound example of what the nation and the world needs so desperately. -- Leon M. Lederman,Nobel Laureate in Physics
When I visited the Long Island Ross School I was struck by the way Courtney Ross and her team successfully brought together the elements of an effective school: reflective teachers, innovative curriculum, and student-centered instruction. It is no wonder that the school has been a magnet for some of the most influential education thinkers of our time. In Educating the Whole Child for the Whole World, Suarez-Orozco and Sattin-Bajaj have created a multi-faceted meditation on the ever-evolving Ross model of education, with relevant lessons for educators everywhere. -- Kathleen McCartney,Dean, Harvard Graduate School of Education
Courtney Ross has devoted her life to holistic education for young people. Educating the Whole Child for the Whole World tells the marvelous story of how one day they will be our future leaders and help create a peaceful, just, sustainable and healthy society. -- Deepak Chopra
Ive always believed that education is freedom. It opens the door to greater possibilities. In my lifes work in education, Ive turned to Courtney Ross to provide insight and inspiration. The Ross School is an exemplary model of what is attainable for global education in the 21st Century. -- Oprah Winfrey
For more than two decades, everything that carries Courtney Ross' imprint has symbolized international, out-of-the-box originality, especially through her efforts in education. One extraordinary example of this was the 2001 Sonic Convergence: A Glimpse Into the Global Classroom project. I was involved, both in person and through the use of cutting edge media, mentoring students and faculty participating in the USA, China, and Sweden; then we came together and made beautiful music as I conducted their final, global composition. -- Quincy Jones
