El Centro de Estudiantes High School takes a project-based approach to learning. This means less emphasis on test-taking, and more focus on deeper engagement and end-of-semester presentations of work to ensure mastery of concepts and build confidence.
Our project-based approach builds important academic skills in the sciences, mathematics, and written and oral communications. Projects are designed by the advisor and are aligned with Pennsylvania Common Core Standards. Project-based learning effectively engages students and empowers them to be active agents in their learning through the creation of meaningful end products.
We couple academics with internship work experience
, post-secondary preparation
, and behavioral and emotional support. Special education and remedial support services are individualized to meet the student's needs
, and then incorporated into learning projects.
Our approach has demonstrated high rates of grade level advances, and enriching marketable skills that translate to real-world work.
