Place-Based Education


The school has a clear, locally meaningful portrait of a graduate that upholds a holistic view of learners, and school culture, systems, and policies facilitate learners’ agency toward that vision. The school culture and schedule encourage cross-disciplinary planning of learning experiences that encourage learners to think about and plan for their lives beyond secondary school and connected to place.
