This rapidly changing world requires a different approach to education if the students of today are going to be successful adults in the future. In addition to a challenging academic curriculum designed to meet the needs of every child, the all-important 21st century skills of creative and critical thinking, collaboration, problem-solving, oral and written communication, and technology are integral parts of a Phoenix education.
