The article features the Village School in Great Neck, New York. According to the author, the students of the school grow in an atmosphere of small classes and personal attention since it accepts only 50 students. Aside from small classes and personal connections to teachers, the other school reform being practiced by Village School is teaching skills like critical thinking and independence. Principal Stephen Goldberg claims that the school wants to prepare its students for the world outside the campus. It is said that Village School has a low-technology ambience and its buildings look more like vacation cottages than a high school campus.
