Penrose Elementary - A Project Based Learning School

  • Why Project Based Learning?

    Project Based Learning (PBL) is an  instructional approach that  focuses on inquiry. Given an essential question, students work collaboratively on projects to address issues specific to our community.  

    Kindergarten Driving Question:
    How does being KIND make the world a better place?

    Would you like to "choice" your student into Penrose from a neighboring district/school?
