Health and Wellness of all community members
Students will create goals in the area of health and wellness with time dedicated to the accomplishment of these goals. Some examples could include the completion of a 5K, development of a vegetarian diet, completing a bike race, hiking a 14er, etc.
All students have the inherent ability to lead others; these skills need to be developed. Students also need to learn how to operate when they are not in a defined leadership role. We will work with students to refine these skills through development of a leadership profile and also will host leadership symposiums with outside speakers from education, business, athletics, etc.
Appreciation for the arts
The arts provide color to life. We want to develop students that have an appreciation for the visual and performing arts. Students would be exposed to live performances, museum trips, artist visits, etc. Students will be encouraged to seek out beauty in their daily lives.
Individual Learner Profiles
All students will have a learner profile that includes relevant academic data, career/interest inventories, learning style preferences, academic strengths, areas for growth, health goals, academic goals, leadership skills, personal accomplishments, etc.
Mastery (Competency) Learning/Flexible Pacing
Problem/Project Based Learning
Personal Inquiry/Passion Development
Students will engage in independent research projects based on personal interests. They will pursue the answer to a question they have formulated. They will do research, conduct interviews, and work with experts or mentors to seek answers and solutions. The hope is that this process will uncover further questions to pursue, areas of personal interest, potential career paths, etc.
Individual Reading Time
Senior Capstone Projects
Students will develop technology skills to find answers, research ideas, collaborate with others, communicate their learning, design creatively, and connect globally. The students will use technology tools on a daily basis. They will use it in personalized learning time, to create presentations, and for personal inquiry. Technology will not be a subject unto itself, but will simply be integrated into the way students learn content.
