Our Approach

We embrace an inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning that is focused on backward curricular and instructional planning with an emphasis on student transfer of discrete knowledge and skills. Our teachers provide instruction at an exploratory-understandng level. For more information about our school , please click here: http://acgoldsmith.wixsite.com/jenks

 

Our Mission

STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology,Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. The idea of emphasizing these subjects in delivering the curriculum has been driven by the business community, with the goal of preparing an agile and competitive workforce. STEAM skills are vital for success in the 21st century and critical to our collective future. The “Critical C’s” of Collaboration, Cooperation and Communication are emphasized through project-based learning, usually through interdisciplinary (across subjects) activities.
