According to Principal Mike Flaherty, project-based learning requires students to utilize critical thinking, problem solving and collaborative skills, along with various forms of communication. He said the benefits of project-based learning include allowing students to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts and standards being taught and also help build vital workplace skills.

Superintendent Patrick Phillips called project-based learning an “innovative instructional strategy intended to be more engaging and interesting” than traditional classroom work.
