Project Learning Studio – PLS

Our Project Learning Studio class focuses on 21st Century citizenship and social studies competencies based on units created through Harvard’s School of Education. Our Project Learning Studio teacher uses these units as the backbone of her class.

Project Learning Studio provides a project approach to learning. Students explore, research, and choose project work around social action and understanding of themselves as global citizens.

Destination Imagination

Destination Imagination is an international organization that promotes creativity, critical thinking, teamwork, and problem-solving. Schools may join the organization and establish Destination Imagination teams on their campuses. These teams participate in national competitions and may be chosen to continue onto international competitions. This program offers students the opportunity to learn about respect, collaboration, and co-creation. This is an extra-curricular program but has a selection process.

Service Leadership Programs

Each grade level has a social service project with a sister school or institution. During the school year, the students have opportunities to meet and share with their counterparts. Each grade level also holds a yearly bake sale to raise funds for their sister school to help them meet an established goal.
