What is Project-Based Learning?

Project-based learning is a dynamic approach to teaching in which students explore real-world problems and challenges with a hands-on application of their in-class learning.  They learn through questioning, inquiry, and critical thinking in completing tasks; in short, learning by doing.

At ESS, Students do not merely learn facts and figures, they learn how to use facts and figures to reach a goal which in most cases, is completing projects.

In the end, the students have a well-rounded approach to learning which, beyond the mastery of core subjects, includes the development of creativity and social skills.
