East Rock Community and Cultural Studies Magnet
We are East Rock, where learning leads us into the world!
Our magnet theme allows students to become familiar with the cultural, geographical and political diversity that exists in the world today. Students will take charge of their educational experiences as they incorporate community-based problem-solving to promote a better understanding of and respect for different people and cultures.
This is done through project-based learning, case studies, field experiences and school-wide interdisciplinary units of study. Teachers are committed to the integration and creative use of technology and promoting student engagement. Students leave East Rock understanding and respecting the many cultures of our world.
