PVPA is a regional public charter school serving 400 students grades 7-12, from over 60 towns throughout Western Massachusetts. We seek to connect the creative process with critical thinking to inspire a love of learning. As a charter school, the work we do informs educational policy at local, state and national levels.
Our goal is to offer a core sequence of study in French, Spanish and American Sign Language which will help students develop a sense of confidence in using the language while laying groundwork for fluency. By using an integrated curriculum that challenges them to blend creative and critical thinking into their work, and that provides numerous options for student-directed learning, we hope to empower students to use all of the resources at their disposal to take responsibility for their own learning. We will guide students by using innovative forms of assessment that allow students to demonstrate competence and mastery through a variety of learning styles and modes of expression.
