The Bay Area Public School (BAPS) is the local branch of The Public School, a global not-for-profit project of several communities that fosters collaborative learning. In their words:
The Public School is a school with no curriculum. It is not accredited, it does not give out degrees, and it has no affiliation with the public school system. It is a framework that supports autodidactic activities, operating under the assumption that everything is in everything.
