Message from Damian Reardon, Principal – “Our goal is to create independent, critical thinkers who are ready to tackle any problem!
A Macdonough education is grounded in interdisciplinary units of study that have at their foundation a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Students are provided the opportunity to become independent learners and thinkers through Project-Based Learning. All of our projects focus on the Engineering Design Process in order to solve real-world problems. This process enables students to bring creativity and imagination to plan out solutions to problems, test their ideas and then refine and improve them. The project-based approach lays a fantastic foundation for independent, critical thinking skills that prepares students for any challenge.”
