A Story Worth Telling

SmartFox is the solution we always wanted, but no one had. Built by a school for schools, it addresses what schools and districts really need. Not what's convenient for the vendor.

Our Timeline

From starting a successful network of charter schools to building SmartFox, and everything in between, it's been a wild ride! Would we do some things differently given the chance? Well, yeah, of course. But we wouldn't swap our experiences for anything. 

Founding of Method

July 2013

In the summer of 2013, Method Schools is founded in San Diego as a blended charter school.

Method opens in Los Angeles

July 2015

Method K-8 and Method High School open in Los Angeles, opening up the Method model to students in all Southern California counties.

Easily Customize Courses

Based on your wants and needs, we can customize our classes for what suits you. It's as easy as 1-2-3.

100% Mobile Friendly

Curriculum that isn't mobile-friendly is about as useful as a corded phone. SmartFox works seamlessly on desktops, tablets and phones. Learning should be available to your students from anywhere.

Outstanding Support

Get the best answers possible, directly from the developers within 24 hours (or even faster).

Intuitive and Engaging

The navigation of SmartFox courses is simple and engaging. It loads fast, makes sense, and students love it. Sometimes we have to remind them that they're actually in school and learning, but that almost ruins the fun. We'll let you decide how to tell them this is school stuff.
