Journey Program for Gifted Students
Journey is a personalized path to success for gifted middle school students in Paradise Valley. It is based on a constructivist theory of education, which maintains that students learn best when they construct knowledge for themselves. For this reason, Journey is heavily focused on Project Based Learning, Blended Learning, and student choice. Students are coached and mentored as they immerse themselves in interdisciplinary units of study that combine social studies, English Language Arts, and science.
