Why is Wildlands unique?
Wildlands is a 7th-12th grade project based school located at Beaver Creek Reserve in Eau Claire County. Wildland middle school students work in a multi-age group and focus on thematic units with multidisciplinary connections. Middle school students learn how to learn in projects directed and coordinated by staff.
High school students work in a more open project based format with a personal learning plan. All the activities and learning students do in high school accumulates credit toward graduation. As a project based school the high school uses multiple learning modes including, long term projects, community service learning, seminars, blended online learning tools, expeditionary learning, adventure based learning, internships, and community partnerships and mentors. Students work in an environment where they are in control of their own schedules and partner with staff on learning plans and projects.
