explain how thy got their answer. Try the PARCC Question of the Week.

“Another unique example of academic excellence can be found at Stephen Knolls School. The Daily Beast recently ran a great story by one of our parents about the sensory garden at the school, which serves students with special needs at all grade levels. The beautiful garden allows students to learn about plant life, ecology, and much more, but is also something that together they can watch grow and thrive. The staff and community maintain the garden, including student volunteers from a nearby high school. This is a great example of hands-on learning that supports real academic concepts. And people are taking notice. Last Friday, Stephen Knolls received confirmation of a $10,000 donation from the Property Management Association to provide campus landscaping, a new sensory garden and new supplies and tools! Congratulations to Stephen Knolls and thank you to the Property Management Association.” - Dr. Starr , State of the Schools, November 11, 2014
