Design Education

Collaborative and interdisciplinary life skills development

Students will gain experience in technical, textile, and culinary education. These age-appropriate programs are designed to expand students’ technical and life skills, while simultaneously building 21st century competencies by promoting student independence, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.

We will establish a community-oriented program in which members of our local community learn with and from our school community and vice versa. We envision working hand-in-hand with elderly community members, providing a mutually beneficial hands-on learning experience for our students and their elders. We also plan to host regular career exploration sessions within our design education program, providing opportunities for students to learn from career experts in our community.
