At D39C, we create a culture of curiosity through inquiry-driven learning. Inquiry is about engagement and involvement of students in active sense-making in meaningful acts of learning. Classroom lessons and activities are designed around connecting students to ideas and content in a way that helps them see why the study matters. In addition, students will be asking their own questions and answering them in ways that are meaningful to them. Our focus is on setting the stage for students to understand. We help students see how context drives decisions, ask questions to clarify an issue, probe deeper to understand why things work the way they do, and discover the forces at work in our natural world and how they impact life on this planet.

Our Inspiration learning happens isn’t as important as whether that learning encourages students to try to learn even more.
