Susan Chamberlin, MBA 87, and her husband, Steve, spent years planning new structures and cityscapes. Now they’re redesigning the world of public education.
It’s an hour after the end of the normal school day at the Summit Tamalpais school in Richmond, California, a time when most schools are quiet of students.
But here, on a hill at the northern edge of the San Francisco Bay, it’s different. Even after a school day that began more than eight hours earlier, there is much energy around the building. Students play in the gym, kick soccer balls outside, and take after-hours classes in rooms abuzz with activity. It’s clear that some don’t want to leave.
