We believe learning is a social process. We believe placing the emphasis on the learner and previous experiences and interests increases motivation for learning and greater satisfaction with school, leading to greater achievement. This approach emphasizes a variety of different types of methods that shifts the role of the instructors from givers of information to facilitating student learning. The learner centered classroom provides opportunities to reflect on and regulate one’s thoughts and behaviors through the use of multiple teaching styles that maximize learner engagement.
We believe quality education provides supported opportunities for individuals to understand knowledge through attaining higher levels of thinking.
