Project Based Learning

The project based learning vision is designed upon 3 foundational principles: 
-Learning must be based on interests and goals for each learner.
-A learner's curriculum must be relevant to the real world. 
-A learner's abilities must be authentically measured by the quality of their work. 
 
Within their framework, there are 10 distinguishers that guide the relevant, real world, project-based learning curriculum and outcomes:
-Learning in the Real World                             -School Culture
-Personalization                                               -Leadership
-Authentic Assessment                                    -Parent/Family Engagement
-School Organization                                       -School/College Partnership
-Advisory Structure                                          -Professional Development
