What is a place-based school?

“This Place-Based Education approach can serve as a framework to connect learning models, increase the power of our educational system and serve as the foundation for a thriving democracy.”- Nate McClennen,

The biggest change coming to Wildwood Academy for 2021/22 is that we will commit to becoming a place-based school. We believe this is a next generation approach to learning that is appropriate for the challenges of the 21st century. While delving into our own community, our curriculum will also include a deep understanding of other cultures, history, and countries and how they relate to our own community and place. We will also explore innovative technologies that will shape the world over the next twenty years and ensure our students are prepared to meet these changes and challenges with a receptive, engaging, and positive attitude.
