Challenge-Based Learning
Challenge-Based Learning

HUM scholars learn by doing. Focusing on real-world problems, students master knowledge, then present and defend their work to an audience.  Students learn best through experiences that allow them to: engage in research; explore and experience concepts, texts, and materials; explain their point of view; elaborate their learning; evaluate findings, using technology and other tools for presentations; and create evidence-based writing and conduct discussions.

Our Vision

Our caring, well-trained faculty support the social, personal and academic growth of students. We work hard to foster a strong relationship between parents, students, teachers and our community.

More Time in the Classroom
