Project Based Learning

Project Based Learning is a curricular framework in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time in response to a complex question, problem, or challenge. Major components of PBL include significant content understanding, asking questions and answering them through research, a process of critique and revision, sharing one’s learning with others, and opportunities for student voice and choice.

Bronxville has partnered with the Buck Institute for Education to learn more about Project Based Learning, and its essential elements including reaching the gold standard of PBL practice. Below are some examples of Project Based Learning experiences that our students participate in across the K-12 curriculum.
