Attwood Building

Welcome To

Attwood New Tech Magnet School

Grades 4-6

 


WHY Do We Do It?

Attwood New Tech Magnet School believes in building 21st century skills in our students that will prepare them for opportunities they encounter in the future. We believe that no matter which pathway our students decide to take, our school will equip them with the skills and traits they will need to be successful in their college and career endeavors.

HOW Will We Get There?

Our school uses the New Tech Network recommended instructional model called Project Based Learning (PBL). PBL is a student-centered approach where students use 21st century skills as they explore and solve real-world problems and challenges with their peers. Our one-to-one technology enables our students to achieve some of the critical tasks they will need to perform and publish their work to a real-world audience. Although our students learn all required core subjects, Attwood teachers integrate science, math, technology, and engineering (STEM) into each content area. 

WHAT Will We Achieve?

Our end goal in mind is to instill the skills and traits our students will need to thrive in the 21st century world. We believe all students will graduate from Attwood New Tech Magnet School with the following acquired and strengthened skills and traits:

  • Written and Oral Communication
  • Collaboration
  • Critical Thinking
  • Creating
  • Agency
  • Problem Solving
  • Empowerment
  • Confidence
  • Empathy
  • Global Citizenship…
  • ...and MORE!
