PRAXIS 2030 is a transdisciplinary learning program which reimagines the school experience at ISKL. Learning is anchored in complex, real-world challenges, empowering students to thrive in a dynamic present and future. Praxis 2030 reimagines the school experience as it:
- Offers real-world challenges
- Empowers students
- Fosters creative exploration and
- Promotes problem-solving
Featuring a smaller learning community and flexible timetable, PRAXIS 2030 focuses on problem-based learning and situates the current science, English, social studies, and art/design curriculum around a series of complex, compelling problems that demand an interdisciplinary approach. Mathematics, world language, and elective courses continue to be taught in the regular classroom setting.
This rigorous program has different classroom activities from the traditional stand-alone subject areas, however, the learning targets and curriculum remain consistent with ISKL’s alternative Grade 9 and 10 classes.
