Project-Based Learning

We believe that students learn best when their school experiences have context and are connected to their lives and global affairs. 


Project-based learning (PBL) is a dynamic classroom approach in which students explore real-life, augmented, and virtual contexts to acquire a deeper knowledge of the material at hand. 

Students spend roughly half their time at KLS learning through projects, often of their own design informed by their Independence Level. All projects are interdisciplinary, and all projects connect to goals within our Graduate Profile (character strengths, cognitive skills, global citizenship, creation, purpose, independence, foundational fluencies, and deeper learning concepts).
