Project Based & Problem Based Learning

Visitacion Valley Middle School students gain skills and knowledge by studying real and engaging questions, problems, and challenges that are lengthy and complex.  This is called Project Based Learning (PBL) and Problem Based Learning (PrBL for math).   PBL and PrBL are an approach and curriculum that is aligned to Common Core Standards.

Project Based & Problem Based Learning

Our goal is to teach students to have not just the knowledge and thinking, but also to be strong written and oral communicators, collaborators across difference, and to develop agency over their own learning.  Support for this is provided by New Tech Network.
