We encourage project- and place-based learning


Teachers design instructional units that focus on the interests and voices of students and that help young people solve problems impacting their communities.

We get outside to learn in nature


Significant cognitive, emotional and physical benefits result from time spent in nature. Not surprisingly, students who learn about and care for their community spaces make vibrant, lasting connections to the world beyond the classroom walls.

We support after-school STEAM clubs


After-school enrichment programs provide support and connection, meeting needs of students and families in a more flexible, informal environment. Diverse STEAM role models can also visit and share insights and encouragement.

We integrate literacy and the arts


Adding these subjects to STEM studies offers learners different ways of knowing and experiencing the world. This harnesses students’ creativity and honors a wider range of skills and interests.
