A child who respects learning and studies with curiosity.


Share our vision and experience the hallmarks of Rootpi education

Rootpi School works with people who agree to our vision and method of teaching. Like how all children are different, we work with parents, children and teachers who are willing to create a future with an education system not designed for all children.


Create innovative approaches for human problems

It helps creatively solve all problems that children will face with the basis of respect and thought for humanity. The children will learn to connect respect for life (Heart), a deep and keen method of thinking (Head) and the skills to create thoughts into reality (Hands).


Discover and develop their passions through rigorous projects

Rootpi School helps children find and build their passion using projects that integrate many different fields of study. This process aids children in designing and their own futures.


Develop fluency in prototyping of visionary ideas and technical proficiency for practical application

Rootpi School promotes free expression of children’s own thoughts and help to teach the technological skills involved in bringing those thoughts into reality.  The skills learned here are not only for technology but also a tool for the advancement of humanity.


Hold conscious curiosity and cautious creativity for challenging uncertain future

Rootpi School grows an awake curiosity and careful creativity in the students who are preparing for an unknown future. They also learn modesty in knowledge and learning, and to not forget to make an effort to make the world a better place.


Don’t have inertia and formula in everyday life for better society

Rootpi School does not reside in the formulas and habits in life. We are always searching for a new challenge rather than repeating projects we have done before.
