Many ideas about 21st century learning and the importance of making them available to all students are crucial. All parents want the best opportunities for their kids – education that is relevant, hands-on, and will set students up for success beyond school. However, the truth is – the partnership of the parents and the school is an important key to developing and supporting 21st century skills.
TQA believes that 21st century skills consist of content knowledge, literacies and proficiencies, and character qualities that prepare students to meet the challenges and circumstances of today’s world.
The areas of development across the school’s academic program are collaboration and teamwork, creativity and imagination, critical thinking, and problem solving. These areas cover: flexibility and adaptability, global and cultural awareness, information literacy, leadership, civic literacy and citizenship, oral and written communication skills, social responsibility and ethics, technology literacy, and initiative.
