DATA is a Magnet Middle School offering 21st Century curriculum including technology infused learning, project based learning, Visual Thinking Strategies, S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and thriving Art and Music Programs. Teachers align their Classroom Environments with Real World Environments emphasizing on: Critical Thinking & Problem Solving – Communication – Collaboration – Creativity & Innovation.
We offer many clubs on campus, from Builder’s Club, which does community service projects with the local Kiwanis, to the Peace and Love Club, Spanish Club, Anime Club, ASB/leadership, Navigator News and more!
43 states, including California have adopted new education standards that “are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers.”
DATA leads the pack in integrating the Common Core standards by instituting PBL across the campus. Students answer a guiding question as they go from science, to English to PE and beyond. It challenges them to build their own learning and connect the ideas they learned in one place to the application of that knowledge in another. It is truly a career minded education all students will need to enter the workforce. It also happens to be a fun and engaging way to learn!
Come catch the wave with us and be a part of the student body authoring their future…….
