Our School Story

At McNeely, when we asked the questions, "What are you learning, how is it going and where to next?" students were able to describe the teacher-assigned immediate task they were involved in and it's relevance.  When we asked, "Can you name two or more adults in the school who think you will be a success in life?" they could answer that with ease, as well.  What we would like to focus on this year, is how students'ability to self regulate is connected to their learning environment.  Our hunch is that given choice and flexibility in how they best learn, students' enagagement and ownership of their learning will improve.
