The mission of the Delaware Met is to ignite the passions of high school students through the discovery and development of their unique interests; to empower students to develop self-confidence and create their own success through a personalized learning environment and purposeful internships of their choice; and, with the support of advisors and community partners, graduate as confident and capable young adults, prepared to make their mark on the world!
There will be a Special Board Meeting on Tuesday, February 2, 2016 at 5:30pm hosted at the Delaware Met.
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!
