In recognizing the importance of experience, we are not alone.
Nothing is in the mind that is not first in the senses.Thomas Aquinas
Anything that we have to learn to do we learn by the actual doing of it.Aristotle
The Learning Experience Comes First
Experience is defined as “an event or occurrence which leaves an impression on someone” and we view it as paramount to the learning journey.
The important skills and attributes learned at school are those that will be used throughout a lifetime.
A new set of rigorous classroom expectations is evaluated in terms of the intellectual, personal, academic and creative challenge of an experience, rather than the passive absorption of historically-driven expectations.
Know that each person within our community comes with a personality, a history, a set of preferences, goals, specific talents and potentials. Everybody doesn’t fit the same mold. We endeavor to find and reveal each individual’s best.
We are part of our family, our neighborhood, our school, our city, and our global community. We strive to be responsible and joyful members of each.
