STUDY: Project Based Learning - The Lawrenceville School

STUDY: 💡 The Lawrenceville School is consistently rated as one of the very best U.S. private schools. A decade ago it ran a fascinating experiment with students taking core science courses. When students returned after summer vacation, they were asked to retake the final exam they had completed three months earlier. Actually it was a simplified version of the final, as the faculty eliminated any detailed questions that students shouldn’t be expected to remember a few months later. The results were stunning. When students took the final in June, the average grade was a B+ or 87%; when the simplified test was taken in September, the average grade was an F or 58%. Not one student retained mastery of all important concepts covered in the course. At The School House hands-on provocative & interesting learning makes certain that children experience concepts and information and thereby retain what they learn!
