Vision of Teaching and Learning

Every year, every student has at least one experience that -- 

  • is inquiry-based;
  • involves original research;
  • involves fieldwork and collaboration with experts;
  • requires them to synthesize learning from multiple disciplines;
  • is in service to the (global/local) community; and
  • is deeply connected to standards.
