Futura
 
"Curiosity is one of the most permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous mind." 

FUTURA is a center-based enrichment program.  Students are transported by bus from their base schools to their designated center.  The program operates daily, and each student attends one full day each week.  The growth and changing population patterns often affect which students attend which center.   Every effort is made to balance the class size and total number of students who attend each center.

The goals of the FUTURA program are: 
 
* The student will draw on past knowledge and apply it effectively in new situations. 
  • The student will display ingenuity, originality and insight.
  • The student will communicate precisely, clearly, and effectively.
  • The student will inquire and investigate.
  • The student will reflect on his/her own thinking.
  • The student will relate to others with understanding, respect, and fairness.
  • The student will reflect on alternatives before taking action.
  • The student will make real-world connections through questioning, problem posing, and problem solving.
