From The Hechinger Report:

Pittsfield Middle High School in New Hampshire, currently is in its third year of student-centered learning approaches, has become an incubator for connecting academic learning and real-world experiences. The school focuses on student-led discussions, small-group work, and individual projects. The traditional grading system has been replaced with a matrix of “competencies,” detailing the skills and knowledge students are expected to master in each class. This article also looks at research form the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education to consider how student-centered learning has made an impact in other parts of the country.
