Will and Jada Have Their Own School

Will and Jada are moving past the realm of the big-screen. The couple has planned to open up a school called "The New Village Academy" in Calabasas, California. The Smiths have home-schooled their children Jaden 9, and Willow 7, for about six years, and found that by doing so, they can open up a new horizon of education for other kids as well. The school will be a private institution that will focus on technology and learning by doing (whatever that means). Will was on Live With Regis & Kelly, and stated that his own experiences with his kids and education is what inspired this idea.
"There are just very powerful educational concepts that we believe in, and we feel like we want to design the system that revolutionizes public education.” Smith said.
The school will open this fall on September 3, and will host prekindergarten through sixth grade students. The school will also provide laptops to each student, as well as all organic, low-fat, sugar free meals. Daaaaaaaang! I am so not mad at them for this. This is wonderful news!
