School Begins September 7th!

Welcome Pacific American Families! School is right around the corner (one week) and we are thrilled you will be joining us.

The portable classrooms are being installed this week! I am sure the 2nd and 3rd graders will love the newness of the rooms... They even smell like NEW.

In case you have not been the school lately, it has been beautifully painted and there are changes taking place each day.

Continue to spread the word about the NEW charter school in the area...

Remember, small class sizes = SUCCESS

Project Based Learning

At Pacific American Academy, we use Project Based Learning to enrich the lives of our students.

Students are asked to answer a question or find a solution to a problem while working with peers.  This requires students to work with one another, share ideas, and think critically.  

According to the Buck Institute for Education, "In Project Based Learning (PBL), students go through an extended process of inquiry in response to a complex question, problem, or challenge. While allowing for some degree of student "voice and choice," rigorous projects are carefully planned, managed, and assessed to help students learn key academic content, practice 21st Century Skills (such as collaboration, communication & critical thinking), and create high-quality, authentic products & presentations."
