As you browse through this site, reading the text and looking at the images of students busy learning and interacting, it should become evident that the Trevor program strives to engage students in activity-based learning. Encountering new information in this environment, students are at the beginning of their journey as life-long learners. The Trevor faculty and administration design programs that keep students moving forward, absorbed in every moment. Whether they are learning about the value of sharing or sharing their interpretations of a Shakespeare sonnet, they are actively discussing, writing, drawing, communicating, asking questions and embracing each new opportunity. At Trevor, teachers ask questions and hesitate to provide easy answers. They design experiences, environments and the means by which students may take ownership of their own knowledge, and answer questions for themselves. Students learn how to learn.
We hope that these pages can shed some light on our very comprehensive and exciting programs.
30,000 bucks a year for activity-based learning.
I think not.
bonus points for technology!
An important element in support of these curricular and learning goals is the presence of sophisticated technology....With growing awareness of the educational power of the Internet and information technology, teachers are incorporating more of its content into their curriculum in every subject area. Every High School faculty member has a laptop computer, thus enabling students and teachers to broaden their communications beyond the classroom and Common Room.
