Outcome(s)-Based Education

A philosophy which "drives" the way in which instruction is organized, delivered and evaluated in our schools. Its purposes are: (1) equipping all students with the knowledge, skills and competencies needed for future success in school, in the workplace and in advanced studies; and (2) establishing conditions in schools which maximize achievement and success for all students.
