Our Approach

A different approach to learning :

FUTURE READY WITH 21ST CENTURY LEARNING

  • Hands-on tasks are created at all grade levels to encourage research, collaboration, creativity and application of knowledge and skills.
  • Students learn about personal accountability and develop interpersonal skills as teachers facilitate learning through group projects and real-life learning scenarios.

STEAM (SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ARTS, AND MATH)

  • STEAM competence is critical to prepare graduates for the jobs of the future and the high-skill requirements of the national and global workforce.
  • From elementary and beyond, students will learn to solve and analyze problems using technological tools and collaborative learning strategies across our curriculum.
  • Project Based Learning (PBL), a constructivist instructional approach where students engaged in meaningful inquiry of personal interest to them and where collaboration and personalized learning are emphasized.
  • PBL on STEAM subjects are proven to develop 21st century skills, such as:
    • Creativity and Innovation
    • Communication and collaboration
    • Research
    • Critical thinking and problem solving
    • Digital citizenship
    • Life and career skills

TECHNOLOGY ENHANCED LEARNING

  • By integrating best-in-class digital resources, we use powerful learning tools that allow students to enjoy learning both inside and outside the classroom.
  • Students are guided to think about and use technology as more than just a social means for enjoyment, but as a tool to access information, resources and work collaboratively.
