My son started as a freshman and will be the first graduating class for all four years. The first year adjusting to the new style of learning is steep, but he has flourished. It does require self discipline and maturity to do well. I love the teaching style; I believe it prepares them well for college and the work place. Basically students are taught a concept, placed in groups and assigned a project to apply it all. They learn to work with others, and that not everyone will pull their weight, and how to work it out (just like life). They help one another and work from strengths. He is getting a fantastic education, loves school and will be amply prepared for college. My daughter will be starting in the Fall and we couldn't be happier. This is the learning style of the future. You must know your kid before sending them here; it is for the enthusiastic "learner", as lazy students will soon be uncovered and shunned for group projects.

This school is the hidden gem of PISD. Everyone is there because they want to be and its created an amazing learning environment. The facilitators are truly dedicated to providing a quality education. My child had a wonder first year at this school He looked forward to going to school every day! Seriously! The corporate and parent partnerships have been amazing. These students will graduate with a true sense of what happens in the real world.
