The model schools project is driven by the principle that an inclusive environment for learning where students feel involved in the process of information exchange is necessary to achieve the desired results.
The 110 model schools project aims to provide a student focus approach to learning. The focus is on healthy social-emotional development by providing students with an inclusive environment and accessibility to resources.
