We Are Exceptional Personalized Learning

Eastern Carver County Schools students learn at their own pace — it’s part of personalized learning. Students can easily work above grade level in reading and math, and in a few cases some students have gone to a middle school or high school for what they need.

Personalized Learning Happens in the Classroom

Purposeful Learning

Purposeful Learning

Teachers in Eastern Carver County Schools not only lead instruction but also facilitate learning for each student. They teach by guiding students towards mastery of content and instilling 21st century skills. Students have access to a variety of resources and tools, and teachers connect student learning beyond the classroom.

Engagement with Learning Tools

Engagement with Learning Tools

With teachers as facilitators, students use a variety of educational tools and resources to maximize learning. While technology will never replace the role of the teacher, it will shape the future careers of our students. Our goal is to prepare students for success beyond high school, wherever their aspirations take them.

Collaborative Environment

Collaborative Environment

Most living and working environments have changed dramatically over the last several decades. Design of spaces and their furnishings reflect purpose: how we live, how we work, and how we learn. We are redefining learning spaces with a variety of furniture, layouts and technology that facilitate collaboration, creativity, comfort, and safety. They also convey a sense of belonging and purpose. School should be a place where students feel welcomed and empowered to learn.

Learner Voice & Choice

Learner Voice & Choice

Students have the freedom to design the way they showcase their learning based on individual styles, experiences, passions, and needs. Respected as capable co-designers, learner agency is cultivated throughout all learning experiences. As learners become increasingly self-aware they grow into their own best advocates: showcasing their learning based on their individual styles, experiences, passions, needs, and knowing “what’s next” for their ongoing development.
