Approaches to Learning

Our primary and intermediate school curriculum is project based and interdisciplinary. Learning is based on an authentic question, in correlation with our community partners. This approach ensures that learning is deep and meaningful, with a focus on the application of knowledge. As an inquiry-based learning environment, all lessons begin with a question. Students ask further questions, hypothesize, conduct experiments, engage in research, document findings, revisit ideas and contribute to capstone work. Each child’s contributions are highlighted in an environment that shares their work through an exploration of communication skills and constructivism.
