More than standardized tests and report cards, student work demonstrates what a student knows and is able to do.
Capital City Public Charter School is an award-winning EL Education program serving nearly 1,000 diverse students in Pre-K through 12th grade. Through a focus on the whole child, we engage students in their own learning, community, and world, using a project-based approach. Learn more about our school at www.ccpcs.org.
The EL Education model focuses on three core areas to ensure student success: Mastery of Knowledge, Student Character and High Quality Work. Based on our best practices and results in these key areas, Capital City was approved as an EL Education Credentialed Mentor School in 2015.
High quality work represents the intersection of mastery of knowledge and student character. We believe that the rigorous and intense process of conceptualizing, revising, producing, and sharing high quality work with peer support and teacher guidance is an essential way our students attain 21st Century Skills. Across every grade, our students have produced exemplary work demonstrating authenticity, complexity and craftsmanship and have ventured into a wide variety of topics and issues ranging from the study of bees to food justice.
