Repost from the Montgomery Advertiser:
On Aug. 13, Pike Road School will open its doors to hundreds of students the first day of the 2015-16 school year.
The school, which broke ground in January 2014, recently hired 53 teachers, 19 of which were formerly with Montgomery Public Schools. The school will adopt a project-based learning instruction model that teaches students how to solve problems through real-world applications.
“We wanted to be very simply stated that we focus on the content of what children need to know and be able to do and let teachers create experiences that cause them to know those standards and create those skills,” said Suzanne Freeman, superintendent for the school system.
Montgomery Advertiser reporter Drew Taylor spoke with Freeman about the new school system, what has gone into creating the school and what it will offer to its students. Click the picture below to listed to the podcast!
