IT FOCUSES ON AN EXPERIMENTAL-LABORATORY-FOR-PEOPLE CONCEPT AND EMPHASIZES THE INDIVIDUAL'S ROLE IN THE LEARNING PROCESS.

THE SEVENTH GRADE PROGRAM HAS AN ANTHROPOLOGICAL BASE OF COMMON CULTURAL ELEMENTS AND UTILIZES THE UNIT-SEMINAR-CONTRACT-PROJECT APPROACH TO TEACHING. UNITS ON TOOLS AND MACHINES, POWER AND ENERGY, AND COMMUNICATIONS AND TRANSPORTATION FOCUS ON THEIR DEVELOPMENT AND THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE GROWTH OF CIVILIZATION. THE EIGHTH GRADE PROGRAM HAS A CONTEMPORARY APPROACH TO AMERICAN INDUSTRY AND USES THE GROUP PROJECT METHOD AND LINE PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES. THE NINTH GRADE PROGRAM TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL NEEDS OF THE STUDENT, HIS RESOURCEFULNESS, CAPABILITIES, FUTURE ASPIRATIONS, PROBLEM SOLVING ABILITY, AND INGENUITY.
