Schutz is proud to offer the innovative CONNECT Class, which is the first of it's kind. CONNECT is a multi-disciplinary course taught by our middle school language arts, social studies, math, art and music teachers. It combines the three middle school grades but often works in smaller groups for project-based learning. The Schutz mission statement lays out our commitment to improve our communities, so this class fits right into that goal. One focus of our class is to instill "Global Citizenship" in our students and teach them the power they possess to not only learn about some of the pressing issues in our world, but to take an active role in creating positive change. In class, we pride ourselves in learning about some of the major issues facing our world today. We are able to research these problems and seek solutions.

Last year, we completed several service learning projects in our community and also completed our Week Without Walls trip to Aswan, Egypt to engage in service projects and put our compassion into action.
