Project Based Learning (PBL)


The PBL approach to teaching and learning immerses students into real-world problems and challenges where they can explore grade level concepts and develop deeper knowledge.  It gives context and relevance to the skills that scholars are expected to master, which in turn builds interest.  When the projects are aligned with state standards, teachers can deliver active instruction in core subjects that will support our scholars’ academic growth.
