Join us as we immerse you in a world designed for 21st Century students through collaboration and inquiry.

Information Inquiry is defined by Dr. Daniel Callison as “an application of the ancient Socratic Method of teaching through self-posed and mentor-posed questions in order to gain meaning in today’s overwhelming Information Age.” Inquiry is standards-based, real-world, problem-solving and information searching that carries on into adult, lifelong literacy necessary for a democratic society. Inquiry and collaboration are interwoven.
