Project Features

  • Based on a project-based, service learning pedagogy, the elementary school supports team teaching in the classroom. Every two classrooms open up to a small group space. Classrooms are grouped around an Extended Learning Area (ELA) large enough to hold two to three classes.
  • The 7-12 MS/HS area offers designated rooms for lecture that can be reconfigured as needed. Double doors lead out to the ELA for individualized learning. A small group area off the ELA is designed for team work and projects. Dedicated classroom and lab space support the school’s agricultural education program.
  • The media center has been re-envisioned as a smaller book lounge/collaboration zone with a coffee shop/spirit wear area. That space, as well as the cafeteria, has the flexibility for lectures.
