We invite students to see themselves as learners. A learner is someone who bravely acknowledges when they don't know something and is willing to do the hard work of figuring it out. We help students build the confidence and skills they will need to succeed in school and life. At Prenda, school doesn't "happen to you." Here, learners take ownership of their education. The learner is the doer, the mover, the becomer. When we invite the learner to set their own goals, manager their time, and own the results of their work, we are empowering them! Will they do this perfectly right away? No! But if they persist, they will progress. We believe that when adults lead by example, ask more questions than they give answers, and build strong relationships of trust and respect, students thrive.
