Learning Cycle

Wonder - Students are presented with exciting and challenging concepts in an engaged and meaningful way to stoke curiousity.

Investigate - With their newfound interest, students are given the space and freedom to explore and experiment driving their own understanding of concepts. 

Share - Students then display their understanding through projects, artifacts and writings which are then shared with parents to open the door to the classroom of their child.
