Unique Learning Style and Beyond
Paper and Pencil got you down? Try PBL, because it’s not an appetizer, it’s a main course!
Our JAG class is uniquely designed around Project Based Learning to accommodate all learning styles and students. We don’t only work on projects for the school, PBL is all about your “Public Product” and how our work reaches further than just the classroom. How would you like the opportunity to show off your skills to community members and business officials that can help you with college and the workforce after high school?
We also work on specific service initiatives throughout the year because things like bully prevention, hurricane relief efforts, and suicide awareness are important, we take pride in helping people and our community. We even work with other JAG programs to make turn small efforts, into BIG results. Plus, we ROCK at it, we have the awards to prove it!
