Description

New Tech is a different way of teaching and learning. Students will use technology to work with their classmates on projects connected to the local and broader communities. Project-focused curriculum will help students develop 21st century independent work habits like productivity and oral communication skills, as well as team member attributes such as collaboration and responsibility. At GMS, we continually seek learning experiences for our students that prepare them for success in high school, college and the ever-changing job market of the future.
