Personalized instruction is at the heart of education at The Gardner School. Instruction focuses on building skills in all the intelligences, as well as incorporating a variety of intelligences in the study of multidimensional topics.
Teachers encourage and challenge each student to develop effective learning strategies, articulate appropriate expectations and set high standards. Reflection at the end of projects helps students assess their own achievements and plan for improvement as they move ahead.
Our Multiple Intelligences curriculum builds confidence and excitement about learning. Achievement in each discipline is measured against specific developmental benchmarks. Students participate by setting individualized goals, measuring their progress and determining strategies to acquire new skills.
