From PBL to the Ivy League

As I enjoy some vacation time away from the Mountainside, I wanted to share this inspiring story about one how one student’s experience with a project-based learning curriculum in a small-school setting prepared her superbly for the competitive academics of an Ivy League college.

Darrow provides a similar type of hands-on, interdisciplinary, design-focused education in an engaged community of creative thinkers and global citizens. You can read more about Darrow’s active curriculum on our website. Be sure to watch the video, too!

I invite your comments and questions, and encourage you to share stories like these with anyone interested in discovering more about active learning. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and are as eager as I am to begin the new school year.
