A proposed science themed Charter School asks for feedback

Proposed Science-Themed Charter School Seeks Community Input:

A team of Hoboken parents and educators is putting together a proposal for a new, science-themed charter school for Hoboken. As part of this process, they are reaching out to the community to gauge interest and seek input.
The survey is available online at  All Hoboken residents are encouraged to fill it out.
Some brief information about the proposed school:
(1) If approved, DaVinci Charter School of Hoboken will open in September 2013 with Kindergarten – 2nd grade, and will expand to K-5.
(2) DaVinci will be a S.T.E.M.-focused school – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. In addition to receiving high-quality instruction in reading and writing and all core subjects, students will participate several times a week in hands-on science experiments and engineering projects.
(3) DaVinci will offer a small, nurturing, and personal community where every child is known.
(4) DaVinci believes in adapting our teaching to the individual child – not the other way around.
(5) The curriculum will be Project Based. This means that students will learn largely through working on real-life-related, engaging, and often interdisciplinary projects that are connected to rigorous academic standards.
