Building 21 Notes

“The goal is personalized pathways where student strengths and interests shape a journey through foundational skills to college and career readiness. The first two years of the high school model are foundational with a focus on building skills and connecting to why. The upper division is a launchpad to what’s next.

The Building 21 learning model stresses strong relationships, problem-based learning, real-world learning experiences and competency-based assessment.

The Building 21 mission is “Empowering networks of learners to connect with their passions and build agency to impact their world.”” from
