We believe that students can engage in different ways and in different places. Our students benefit from individually-paced, targeted learning tasks that start from where the student is, formatively assess existing skills and knowledge, and address the student’s needs and interests.


competency-based-learningOur students move ahead based primarily on demonstrating key learning milestones along the path to mastery of core competencies and bodies of knowledge. We expect our students to have multiple means and opportunities to demonstrate mastery through performance-based and other standardized assessments.


Learning takes place beyond the traditional school day, and even the school year. Time and place are used flexibly, in ways that optimize and extend student learning. Students have equitable opportunities to take advantage of digital technologies that can enhance learning based on their demonstration of skills and knowledge.


Our students understand how to get “smarter” by applying effort strategically to learning tasks. They have frequent opportunities to direct and to reflect and improve on their own learning progression towards college and career ready standards through formative assessments that help them understand their own strengths and learning challenges.
