The traditional content being taught isn't useful anymore
Shakespeare is awesome, but it doesn't contribute to what my children need to learn before they go out into this new world and be excellent adults. They need to understand technology. They need to be able to think critically. They need to understand TODAY'S human beings in order to navigate life.
Preparation for college
I'm curious how prepared RA students feel entering college? Will they have the practice and teaching for writing college level papers within this learning environment? Colleges are often still set up to receive students that have gone through the "molding" of our traditional public school system.
Learning style and school size
The addition of Riverpoint is great and does address one of my concerns. With the size of our high schools (MHS and MSHS), it's easy for an introverted smart student to get overlooked. These kids can get disengaged with repetitive memorization and lecture teaching styles.
No onsite math teacher
My son has told me they are using Khan Academy for their math class. I like this idea, however he also said there isn't a math teacher on site to help if he has issues or questions. Are there plans to have an onsite math teacher?
Would like to see hands on usage of 3-D printer and laser machine.
