Tar River Elementary is a Project-Based Learning Community whose mission is to positively impact every student each day through rigorous, engaging experiences. The Buck Institute for Education, a world leader in project-based learning (PBL), defines PBL as “a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, problem, or challenge“ (https://www.pblworks.org/what-is-pbl). This method requires students to own their learning by developing surface, deep, and transfer-level knowledge of curriculum standards at mastery levels through reading, writing, listening, and speaking about real-world issues daily. The projects help students learn the skills they need to be successful in later grades and life outside of school. The high level of rigor required to implement PBL effectively develops collaboration, critical thinking/problem-solving, communication, creativity, character/connectivity, and citizenship skills in students - skills that are necessary for success at all levels of education and in all career fields. Teachers are able to personalize learning, engaging all students in rigorous experiences that help them reach their highest potentials. Unlike traditional projects that only require students to show knowledge, project-based learning projects require students to apply knowledge, skills, and strategies from multiple content areas. Students develop the ability to ask the right questions, conduct in-depth research independently and collaboratively, evaluate and synthesize results, create products, present results to authentic audiences, and reflect on the strength of their work. In PBL, the process of learning becomes more important than the product. PBL, strong core instruction, a variety of extra-curricular activities, and a strong PTSO and volunteer team make Tar River Elementary a strong community in which everyone is fully engaged to ensure each student meets his/her highest potential.

Granville Central High School started offering a STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Math) program in the 2015-2016 school year. The program uses the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Engineering curriculum.

In PLTW Engineering, students engage in open-ended problem solving, learn and apply the engineering design process, and use the same industry-leading technology and software as are used in the world’s top companies. Students are immersed in design as they investigate topics such as sustainability, mechatronics, forces, structures, aerodynamics, digital electronics and circuit design, manufacturing, and the environment, which gives them an opportunity to learn about different engineering disciplines before beginning post-secondary education or careers. For more information on the curriculum, please visit https://www.pltw.org/our-programs/pltw-engineering/pltw-engineering-curriculum.

Bus transportation for students outside the Granville Central attendance zone will be provided to students in the form of shuttle buses to and from the J. F. Webb and South Granville High School campuses.



Leadership and Character Programs

4 months ago

Leader in Me is a whole school improvement model that uses teaching practices to promote social and emotional learning for students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade. The leadership focus aims to shift mindsets with five core paradigms: everyone can be a leader, everyone has genius, change starts with me, educators empower students to lead their own thinking, and develop the whole person. The program provides teachers with a variety of practices that support leadership, culture, and academics. In addition to leadership development, character development is an essential part of a child’s education. It is not an add-on to the already full school day; but rather, it is an important ingredient that helps to shape the climate and the culture of schools. It is not merely education for life. It is life itself.
