Interested in learning more about either Project-Based Learning or our Teacher-Powered School?
There are several ways to proceed:
Tours on Tuesdays at 9: These can be tailored to explore either PBL or Teacher-Powered schools. Call (651.649-5495 ext. 204) or email Gretchen to schedule a tour. If Tuesdays at 9 do not work for you, we also give tours to prospective parents on Tuesdays at 11:20 or Wednesdays at 2:45. You are free to join either of those tours if those times work better you. Cost: free.
Half-day Immersion Visits to explore Teacher-Powered Schools: These begin early on Thursday with a staff meeting. After the staff meeting, participants will meet with a staff member who will discuss our teacher powered model. The visit includes a tour as well as time to talk to staff members and students about our model and how it impacts learning at Avalon. Call (651.649-5495 ext. 205) or email Carrie to schedule an immersion visit. Cost: $75/person. Call for group rates.
Half-day Immersion Visits to explore Project Based Learning: These visits can be scheduled on Fridays. The visits include a tour, time to talk to staff and students about learning in a PBL setting, and an opportunity to shadow an advisor to see PBL in action at Avalon. Call (651.649-5495 ext. 204) or email Gretchen to schedule an immersion visit. Cost: $75/person. Call for group rates.
