Technology school now enrolling

VISTA — The Casita Center for Technology, Science, and Math in Vista is now enrolling. As a magnet school, Casita offers students an expanded learning experience with a special focus on technology, science and mathematics. With specialists on staff and expanded facilities, Casita brings the new technologies and methods of the 21st century into the classroom. Each week students attend math and science labs. The lab specialists design and facilitate inquiry-based investigations with a focus on global awareness. Students at Casita are not only learning math and science standards, they are also applying their knowledge to real world issues, addressing such topics as alternative energy and deforestation.
“I loved Casita, it was truly the best educational experience for me, and inspired me to strive to learn more,” former student Ashley Graciano said. “The teachers were passionate and made learning fun and exciting, and most importantly understandable.”
Casita Center for Technology, Science, and Math has transformed the traditional “lecture” style teaching by combing theory based learning with practical application and incorporating a community/world involvement, instilling how each individual can make a difference.
Casita Center for Technology, Science, and Math is currently enrolling for the 2009-2010 school year for students entering the first, fourth, and fifth grades with some openings available for students this year. Group tours are available every Friday and individual tours can be scheduled by calling (760) 724-8442.
