Learn By Doing

All learning is centered around the Georgia Standards of Excellence!
These standards help move instruction far beyond basic repetition, memorization, and passive seatwork. The standards challenge students to develop a deeper understanding of subject matter, to learn how to think critically, and to apply what they are learning in real-world situations.
