Big Picture Learning

The Delaware Met is a member of the international Big Picture Learning network. Each student at the Delaware Met is part of a small learning community called an advisory. The advisory is supported and led by an advisor, a teacher that works closely with each advisee to identify their interests and personalize their learning. Every student participates in core content classes and also learns in a real-world setting (internship) two times per week. A mentor from the Wilmington community helps to support the connection between content curriculum and real world application. Parents and families are actively involved in the learning process, helping to shape the student’s learning plan. The Big Picture Learning model ensures that students are prepared for college and beyond!

Big Picture Learning

In 1995, Dennis Littky and Elliot Washor established Big Picture Learning in Rhode Island, with the motto of "education is everyone's business." They envisioned a school where students took ownership of their learning and built partnerships based on real world work and connections. Their school design, based on educating one student at a time, has been replicated throughout the country serving students of all backgrounds and abilities.
