(CBS News) Friday is graduation day at an unusual K-8 school in California -- and there is only one graduate. He's part of an experiment in San Francisco called AltSchool that could re-define how your kids get an education, reports Ben Tracy.
Curiel-Friedman is 13 years old. He's the only 8th grader and about to become the first graduate of AltSchool.
"Here, we don't do textbooks. We do computers and I really like that," student Zev Curiel-Friedman said.

When the kids arrive at the school, the first thing they do is swipe in on a tablet on the wall and then grab their own tablet for class.
There are no bells and no principal. There are two teachers in every classroom and the kids are a mix of ages and grade levels. Curiel-Friedman says there are not even 30 kids in a classroom.
Launched just two years ago, AltSchool is part school, part start-up -- an education incubator where kids are the beta-testers.
