Project based learning is going to a process to figure out a problem. The steps for this are: 1.Entry Document (you find out what the problem is) 2.Know (you write what you know based on the entry document 3.Need to Know (you write what you don’t know but you need based on the entry document)

A way we are different from other high schools is that we have sister schools all over the country and our facilitators go and visit the other schools. There are 62 of these sister schools. The states that our sister schools are in are: California Colorado Illinois

4.Problem Statement (you write why you need to figure out the assignment)
