SCHOOL GOALS

Students will have agency, specifically increased voice and choice, in order to own (be active participants in) their learning.

  • Students in piloting classrooms will begin to experience agency and demonstrate ownership of their learning

Samuels learners will be able to synthesize, apply and relate to their learning.

  • Students in piloting classes will engage more deeply in their learning through collaboration, reflection, and the synthesis and application of content and learning strategies

Students at Samuels will feel safe (psychologically and emotionally) and support in their learning environment.

  • Research programming; decide on a school-wide program; train staff in preparation for school-wide roll-out for 2017-2018 school year.

Samuels families and the surrounding community will be engaged in the life of Samuels.
