Our students are driven, worldly, lifelong learners. Their unique learning styles and zest for life make them incredible students. Our diverse learners are the future, and we strive to provide them with a world class 21st century education that will make them stand out among the best! As an arts integration school, we provide our students with a global education that teaches the whole child. Our emphasis on wellness also takes into account the basic needs of our unique learners.
Critical thinking is an essential 21st century skill our students will need when they enter the workforce.
While our students are naturally critical thinkers, any opportunity to develop this essential skill will benefit them upon completion of their school years.
With the popularity of Escape Rooms, students will be more motivated to complete complicated mathematics tasks. Students will be given the opportunity to work collaboratively to solve a series of complex math problems, related to skills taught in the classroom, as well as beyond the classroom.
By working together to complete the Escape Room, students will learn from each other and utilize clues to solve a problem.
They will complete math problems using problem-solving skills. After solving each problem, they will escape one area. Then they will need to complete another problem, etc. Each math problem will increase in reasoning and logical thinking. These materials can also be used for other subjects to help with students' critical thinking skills, which are essential for 21st-century skills. Once materials are acquired, we can make an incredible amount of growth in 21st-century problem-solving.
