Project Based Learning

In an effort to enhance students’ opportunities for success, the middle school has restructured its fifth- and sixth-grade program for specials like art, family and consumer science, and technology. For sixth-graders, each of the three course teachers is working with his or her classes on creating projects related to the school’s spring production of “The Lion King.” Under this theme, the family and consumer science classes are designing the costumes, the technology classes are designing and creating bones for the graveyard scenes, and the art classes are using African-inspired symbols to create artwork for the sets.
