We are a project-based learning school.
Our students spend nearly four hours a day working on projects. Project work is interdisciplinary. One trimester a student might do a project on clean energy and another on the school-to-prison pipeline. The next, they could write a play and work on the food justice.
Over the course of the year, projects cover all major subject areas, and also help students build five foundational skills: reflection, improvement with feedback, collaboration, problem solving, and project management.
Below are projects we’ve completed recently.
