Project Based Math & Technology
Seeing the connection in math to real life, encouraging exploration of mathematical concepts and procedures through meaningful projects. Finding the most effective design to solve a math problem given specific parameters. Using technology to enhance and deepen the understanding and learning process of mathematics.
Integrated Language & Dramatic Arts
Arts are essential to expression and the human experience. Communicating words through music, dance and the visual arts gives voice to the invention of new projects and visions.
STEAM & Design Thinking
Encouraging our students to think like artists while applying science, technology, engineering and math skills in their daily work. A Design Thinking model supports our values and encourages creativity, empathy, challenge and discovery. A STEAM and Design Thinking curriculum encourages our students to try multiple ideas, listen to alternate opinions and create a knowledge base that applies to real life situations.
