AN ACADEMIC CURRICULUM MEANT FOR THE EARLY YEARS
Our curriculum is both academically challenging and developmentally appropriate for the age and maturity of our students. The integrated curriculum at Concord Hill incorporates mathematics, language arts, and social studies into every class. Through discovery and exploration in small classes, our students learn that acquiring knowledge can be both challenging and fun.
PROJECT BASED LEARNING (PBL)
Project-basedased learning is a student-centered teaching and learning method that involves a dynamic classroom approach. It is believed that students acquire a much deeper knowledge through active exploration of real-world challenges and problems. In this model, students learn about a subject by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, challenge, or problem. This is a style of active learning and inquiry-based learning.

WHAT DOES PROJECT BASED LEARNING LOOK LIKE IN THE CLASSROOM?
PBL contrasts with paper-based, rote memorization, or teacher-led instruction that presents established facts or portrays a smooth path to knowledge by instead posing questions, problems or scenarios. The teacher, in this model, acts as a facilitator, guiding the students through their own collective learning journey based on their distinctive questions and inquiries. It is through this model that we typically guide students through their learning process, ensuring that every member of the classroom is both interested in and invested in the learning that is happening.
