The San Carlos Charter Learning Center (CLC) uses an interdisciplinary curriculum within a project based learning environment rich with hands-on experiences. CLC uses a thematic approach when planning curriculum. Our staff works in teams to deliver an academic program that maximizes our learners’ ability to achieve our high academic standards. The curriculum requires learners to use higher order thinking skills to solve problems and successfully complete projects. Learners work in multi-age groupings with many opportunities for teamwork and study based on real-world resources like trade books, original source documents and choices in what and how they learn.
