Leaning through traditional “teach and preach” models is NOT within the PSOE structure. Sensory Integration and observation are two fundamental ways in which children learn from their environment. At PSOE, we believe in academic culminations involving integrated sensory learning whereby students may touch, see, taste, hear and smell what they are learning.
Students can understand life cycles and growth patterns in the EcoRoom as they monitor and groom greenhouse plants, and practice in the growth and release of butterflies. The EcoRoom features a green landscape, grow wall, large floor planters, lizard terrarium, demonstration beehive and a butterfly hatchery.
