The Common Core and 21st Century Learning

On this page you will find links and information about the Common Core Standards and the Framework for 21st Century Learning, which outlines the skills, knowledge, and expertise students should master to be successful in work and life in the 21st Century. 

21st Century Learning emphasizes the 4 C's: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication, and Collaboration. These four learning skills are aligned with the mission of Orchard View School and are articulated in the school's Expected Student Learning Results. The flexible learning environment and emphasis on individualized learning at Orchard View School provides OVS students with a unique vantage to develop the skills in innovation, technology, and problem solving necessary to succeed in college and careers.
