Educational Vision

IMG_6461

     Jia-Li Junior High School immerses its students in studying subjects as a way of seeing and making sense of the world.  Learning experiences focus on the active exploration of major concepts, ideas, and theories that respond to life’s big questions.  Students will be exposed to the history of these ideas; the struggles and controversies necessary for their furture developments. These kinds of questions and problems are keys to the discovery process and the special roles of effort and creativity.  Students model and engage in their own explorations so that they may experience the excitement, beauty, and difficulty of discovery.  Students become cognizant of the limits of knowledge and be sensitive to the dangers of an over-reliance on science and technology.  Students learn to explore new questions, to ponder the significance of new scientific discoveries, and to use scientific knowledge and critical thinking in their own life decision-making.
