'To serve as a model of transdisciplinary study that fosters student inquiry and learning using a breadth of intellectual approaches and knowledge to enable students to critically engage with our diverse and complex world and meaningfully contribute, with intention, to the public good.'
'Mussolini and the fascists made us understand that obedient human beings are dangerous human beings. When we decided to build a new society after the war we understood that we needed to have schools in which children dared to think for themselves, and where children got the conditions for becoming active and critical citizens.' -Renzo Bonazzi, Reggio Emilia's Mayor from 1962 to 1976
