Schoolwide Learner Outcomes
The Schoolwide Learner Outcomes are goals that we have for the students at Pacific Coast Academy. By receiving an education with us, our goal is that by the time a student graduates high school, the SLOs will be incorporated into a student's life.
One goal, as educators, is to help our students become independent in their learning and thinking. Let us know how you support this or observe this in your students.
Effective Communicators - Effective communicators who can thoughtfully articulate their thinking with confidence while collaborating with peers.
