Project-Based Learning
á
Interdisciplinary project-based learning serves as one of the cornerstones of our STEM experience. In addition to connecting the content areas, PBL ensures a rigorous experience rooted in the relevance of current problems of practice facing our community and the world at large.

Students receive a separate grade for PBL, which is reflected on their high school transcript to help demonstrate the successful application of 21st century skills in the classroom.
á
Our goal is to immerse all students in an environment that:
  • Promotes creativity & innovation.
  • Embeds opportunities for critical thinking and problem solving.
