Involvement and Engagement

We believe a quality education includes participation in the world around us, in the community that evolves and develops right alongside our classrooms.

Community Projects and Events

In order to foster and encourage curiosity, respect, and critical thinking and questioning skills, we collaborate with local businesses to create events which provide students with the opportunity to learn more about their community, understand how a business is run, identify the skills and strategies different positions might include, and give a behind-the-scenes perspective. We explore a large range of fields, from photography to sculpture to environmental issues to local government.

We visit local businesses to experience their presentations on how the business is run, responsibilities and roles, past obstacles and successes, and any experiences they might wish to share that are specific to their field of work and helps the students learn more.
