What's Happening

Message from the Site Leader

It’s with enthusiasm that I write this message to all stakeholders.  We are implementing performance based learning, PBL, at our school this year.  PBL is an innovative, student-centered approach to learning.  In a performance-based system, learners work at their performance level and advance through the curriculum when they have demonstrated proficiency of the required knowledge or skills.

Therefore, as we transform and address the learning needs in the 21st Century, we will continue to build strong relationships with learners, parents/guardians and community members.

We are preparing our learners for jobs that do not yet exist.  Additionally, our learners are digital natives and have information right at their fingertips.  Therefore, we must address teaching and learning differently in today’s schools.

I believe performance based learning is the very best system to meet the challenges of the future for our learners. 

Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to dialogue about any suggestions or ideas to make this the best year yet!

In partnership,

Donald G. Trujillo
