Students will directly interact with their peers and teachers through a variety of technology platforms.The clubs focus on real life learning, our small group instruction will be provided in a 1:4 teacher to student ratio. We will begin as a whole group and then “breakout” into “rooms” with fewer students to provide more personalized instruction and discussion. The groups are facilitated by experienced K-8 certified teachers.
