ABOUT THE SCHOOL
Grades served: PK-8
There is a drop in joy due to pressures of test scores and standards. Our students have limited class choice options and there is fragmentation because of a departmental schedule.

Increase teacher and student joy and engagement through inquiry based learning, flexible block-scheduling and choice.
Teachers will implement an inquiry-based unit, using a rubric and unit plan that can be adapted for particular subjects.
