There's a new school in town which is aiming for big accomplishments even though it's very small. Imago Dei (Image of God) was founded by two Episcopal priests in Tucson in 2005 (opened in 2006) based after a model that's been decades in the making.

It has small classes and a ratio of no more than 10 students per teacher serving kids who qualify for free or reduced lunch programs according to the federal government: The goal is to use education to take kids out of poverty along with emotional and physical support.

Now, the class is getting ready for a national architectural competition following state and regional wins in designing a new school with sustainable elements.
