A guiding philosophy defines our fundamental educational approach. Our guiding philosophy is constructivist teaching and learning. In this philosophy, the learner uses existing knowledge to create unique solutions and navigate unpredictable situations – the power (choice and control) is transferred to the learner. In our District 45 community, we are all learners.
