Visit our School
Are you working in the field of education and curious to learn more about MNCS? On Thursday, February 16, 2017, you are welcome to visit MNCS from 9:00 – 10:30 AM to tour the high school building and learn about how a project-based, teacher-led school works. This event is free of charge, and you can be in touch with Paul Jaeger at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in passing through.
Transitioning from a teacher-directed model of learning to a student directed, project based model can be difficult. Below are some books about PBL and MNCS that many staff and parents have found helpful for developing a better understanding of our learning model. Links are to amazon.com; we do also have several copies available at the high school library for parents to check out:
