The New Paradigm School is a model of a school facility designed to enhance educational outcomes for high school students with emotional disabilities with the stated goal of bridging the gap between research and practice that currently characterizes the field of education (Caine, 2000). Several non-traditional, researched-based methods are investigated to identify those approaches that are proven effective and are ideally suited for this specific population. The model suggests that through experiential education, differences in ideology and practice may be overcome. Experiential learning represents a pedagogy that is consistent with modern assumptions as to the nature of life and learning and is also one that may be universally applied to all educational settings. The model incorporates findings from a variety of educational fields including brain based learning, special education, alternative education, and environmental education. The model describes the philosophy and methodology of the New Paradigm School, paying specific attention to the school environment and community
