Developing Creative Problem-Solvers

  • "Because the pace of the societal change shows no signs of slackening, citizens of the 21st Century must become adept problem solvers, able to wrestle with ill-defined problems and win.  Problem-solving ability is the cognitive passport of the future."

    Michael Martinez

     

    Parents, community members, local employers, pastors, teachers, and students were asked in 2013 what the school system should do to prepare students for a dramatically-changing world.  This year-long dialogue set us on a new course, one in which we believe will allow our students the opportunity to fulfill their dreams, and as parents, our dreams for them.

    Theory of Action

    Education focused primarily on content acquisition and standardized performance measures do not adequately prepare students to successfully engage an increasingly complex world.  High Quality Content, coupled with the competencies contained within the Portrait of a Graduate, will yield Creative Problem-Solvers prepared to tackle the challenges of College, Career, and Citizenship.
