Students interested in starting at DREAM Technical Academy do not have to have experience with PBL. Each student is part of an advisory of 14-20 students that is guided by an Advisor. The role of the Advisor is to aid the students in the PBL process. By developing strong relationships with each individual student, the Advisor is able to individualize this process. Instead of comparing the students to a number, students are awarded credit (no grades!) based on their ability level, the quality of the project, and the amount of time spent on a project. DREAM’s vision is to provide a project-based learning experience built on relationships, where student passions and interests drive learning toward becoming flexible problem solvers, effective leaders, and responsible citizens.
