The "2st Century Prep" model prepares students to use the latest technologies and communication tools to COLLABORATE with others, CREATE projects, BUILD products and DESIGN digital portfolios of work demonstrating competency for life, work and citizenship in the 21st Century.      

USE OUR "TACTICS OF INNOVATION" TO CONNECT CURRENT STRATEGEIS TO FUTURE LEARNING AND EFG / PBL!

The EFG Project and Product based learning model CONNECTS skills and subjects the way the world works.   EFG was a "PARADIGM SHIFT" in the way students learned in 1993 and continues to "SHIFT"  with the latest technologies applied to the changes in the  real world today and in preparation for life, work, and citizenship in the world of tomorrow.
