The most dynamic learning experiences happen through Project-Based Learning.
Exceptional education at Hamilton District Christian High is imaginative, innovative and interwoven with our essential Biblical identity. An exceptional learning community looks to produce and engage with culture by turning our visions into actions, our ideas into products. One of the ways that we will accomplish this is through the essentials of Project-Based Learning (PBL). And it is our vision to have Project-Based Learning as an everyday learning experience for our students at Hamilton District Christian High.

Creating opportunities for critical thinking
At the core of Project-Based Learning is that real-world problems capture students’ interest and provoke serious thinking as the students acquire and apply new knowledge in a problem-solving context. This learning is contextual, creative, and shared. Students collaborate on meaningful projects creating opportunities for groups of students to gather information, think critically be creative and communicate in order for them to answer challenging questions or solve complex problems.

By making learning relevant to them in this way, students see a purpose for mastering required skills and content concepts.
