Our Learning Philosophy

A Teaching Method That Actively Engages Students In Real-World & Personally Meaningful Projects

Project-Based Learning

Learning Comes Alive and Becomes Relevant

  • Work on a project over an extended period
  • Solve a ‘real-world’ problem or answer a complex question or challenge.
  • Creating a public product or presentation for a real audience.
  • Develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills.

"Projects" vs Project-based Learning


Short, intellectually light independent work required after the teacher covers the content of a unit, e.g., “Build a volcano and make it erupt.”

Project-Based Learning

The Project IS the unit.

  • Start with: Challenging problem or question
  • Then: Engage a coach
  • Design and plan/Student Voice and Choice
  • Align to standards
  • Research/Manage activities
  • Scaffold student learning/Reflection
  • Access student learning/Critique and Revise
  • Finally: A published product or presentation
