Inquiry Learning: Actively involving your child
in the learning process
We celebrate the fact that God created all children with curiosity, wonder and the desire to learn. We believe that children come to school with a vast array of previous experiences and knowledge. With the appropriate guidance and direction from their teacher, they can apply what they know to different situations and conditions, making discoveries and connections that make learning meaningful.
Students collaborate with peers to create projects and presentations. They observe, research, question, and interpret information. Evergreen encourages students to develop a questioning attitude about the world around them. Active involvement increases the motivation to learn. Students learn through exploration and critical thinking. They understand more fully the process of gaining knowledge. This is a valuable awareness that will serve them well throughout their entire lives.
