    [synopsis] => Samuel Levin, a teenager who had already achieved international fame for creating Project Sprout-the first farm-to-school lunch program in the United States-was frustrated with his own education, and saw disaffection among his peers. In response, he lobbied for and created a new school based on a few simple ideas about what kids need from their high school experience.
  
The school succeeded beyond anyone's wildest expectations and went on to be featured on NPR and in Newsweek and the Washington Post. Since its beginnings in 2010, the Independent Project serves as a national model for inspiring student engagement.
  
In creating his school, Samuel collaborated with Susan Engel, the noted developmental psychologist, educator, and author-and Samuel's mother. A School of Our Own is their account of their life-changing year in education, a book that combines poignant stories, educational theory, and practical how-to advice for building new, more engaging educational environments for our children.
