Research

We take research seriously

Research from The National Commission on Teaching & America’s Future informs us that,

Students learn best when new ideas are connected to what they already know and have experienced; when they are actively engaged in applying and testing their knowledge using real-world problems; when their learning is organized around clear, high goals with lots of practice in reaching them; and when they can use their own interests and strengths as springboards for learning.

In our work with children we:

  • Empower students as artists and learners
  • Contextualize knowledge to make it meaningful
  • Connect learning to real world experiences
  • Create a collaborative classroom environment
  • Customize learning to ignite student interests
  • Establish a visible learning culture
