Van Siclen Community Middle School provides a project based learning curriculum which is deliberate and reflective. Our students are engaged in problem solving, inquiry research, analysis, and evaluation. As a VSC student, our students are undoubtedly challenged to learn to use technology to strengthen their skill-sets on their educational and essentially life journey.
The Van Siclen Community Middle School curriculum and instructional model is built upon a rigorous and relevant curriculum aligned to common core standards, and instruction aligned to best practices and authenticity (Project/Problem Based Learning Approach).
Van Siclen Community Middle School students will learn how to learn.
Our instructional philosophy is designed to put students in the driver’s seat as it pertains to their development. Students learn best when they are driven by purpose and the learning is meaningful. Students will learn how to develop relevant questions that guide their work. Students will learn to set goals and self-reflect to assess their progress towards their goals. They will also learn the skills to research or design experiments to get relevant data, and determine effective ways to present information and findings to audiences. Students will see the relevance of their learning and understand that learning is a tool for their empowerment to solve problems and improve the lives of those in their communities.
The process in which they engage with the content is what makes Van Siclen Community Middle School capable of preparing students who are ready to experience success in college and be relevant in their respective careers.
