Providing Every Student with Varied Learning Experiences: Developing 21st Century Proficiencies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

To succeed in the dynamic, 21st century world, students need more than just academics. At Compass School, we have long aimed to develop good students and good people. We do this by assuring every student is engaged in diverse learning experiences within and beyond our walls. Through thoughtful scheduling and a creative yearly calendar, our small school provides wide ranging learning opportunities that ensure every student develops proficiencies in our 5 learning realms: knowledge, personal development, communication, community involvement, and thinking and reasoning. We will share our varied experiences and invite participants to share the ways their schools go beyond "just academics" to ensure every student develops as a well-rounded person with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to make a difference in the world.
