    About Our Classroom
    A dynamic, interactive, and fun learning environment that focuses on creative, critical, and design thinking.  Though highly-structured, students are encouraged to use their individual learning styles to access concepts and information, while pursuing problem-solving strategies.  Homework loads are encouraged to promote time management, organization, personal responsibility, and prioritization skills/behaviors.  Process and project-oriented learning.
