Problem / Project / Passion Based Learning

ESSDACK believes that lifelong learning does not happen in isolation. If we want students to be prepared for life, they must experience learning in a real-world and authentic environment. This connected learning includes intentionally making cross curricular connections, connecting learning to the community beyond the four walls of school, and designing creative ways to rethink the use of time in learning.
