Our teachers utilize the Project Based Learning (PBL) method of teaching by introducing the essential concepts and then working on projects that use those concepts. Our outcomes are not merely based on retention but rather on applications through analyzing, evaluating, and creating solutions for real world problems. This solid foundation would furnish our elementary students with a basis for lifelong learning.
Through these courses our students are enlightened about the world in which they live, with an emphasis on project based learning in an environment that applies concepts to real-world problems and projects. Teachers work with students and parents to ensure that this partnership will result in a life-long commitment to education.
Project Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge.
