OUR CURRICULUM FOCUS
We remain steadfast in research-based practices to ensure all students learn to read, write and demonstrate the math skills necessary to apply them to our projects. Our approach allows students to be engaged, collaborative, and hands-on with real-world projects and connections to careers. Student curiosity is used to develop excitement around solving problems through collaboration and choice.
