EL Design Principle in Action
The Responsibility for Learning
Learning is both a personal process of discovery and a social activity. Everyone learns both individually and as part of a group. Every aspect of an Expeditionary Learning school encourages both children and adults to become increasingly responsible for directing their own personal and collective learning.
The coming weeks will allow for many students the opportunity to show mastery of two standardized tests Workkeys and the ACT. At the end of April, all third year high school students will take these tests. Each student testing will be expected to show grit and endurance in taking these tests. Thank you ahead of time for your diligence in testing and preparing to do your best. Students not testing will have planned academic events to experience while the testing experience takes place.
