A Little Bit About Bdote Learning Center


Our students' learning is place-based and experiential. Students are immersed in rigorous, active, interdisciplinary learning projects, often involving learning outside of school walls. Curriculum content is tied to the geographical surroundings of the school, the local history, landscape, ecology, and Native languages and cultures.  We strive to develop a love of lifetime learning, language speakers, and to create a college preparatory path for all students.
