  2. 2. The Radians Middle school has embraced non-traditional education and has increased students’ active participation in the classroom. With this increase in student participation comes deepened learning and development of critical analysis skills. Here we see 7th (Acevedo) carrying out a Cooperative Learning routine known as “Four Corners” in Prof Berrios’ History course. Students discuss different topics and themes, share ideas ,and come to conclusions. They establish and identify similarities and differences of opinions based on their interaction with other team members. As they move from station to station, the physical motion of these activities helps the student internalize the concepts and ideas and to express these to others. Along with acquiring a heightened sense of understanding of the topics, the students are also developing the necessary social skills of cooperation and collaboration which are very essential skills for the future success of any 21st century student. Non-Traditional Learning Embraced by 7th Grade Students Math Team to Represent Radians School In Mayaguez Competition Congratulations to the students who will represent Radians School in the Olimpiadas Matemáticas Competition at the UPR-Mayagüez Campus and to their teacher-trainers!

Your child deserves a “Radians” education! Don’t Wait! Co-curricular Focus- ROBOTICS This year we offered a co-curricular activity (by invitation only) for our students to study, design, and build task-specific robots. Robotics offers students the opportunity to delve deeply into our STEM-based science program. Students learn about science while, at the same time, being engaged in a fun and interesting environment. Our after-school robotics course has the view of preparing our students for their future studies in our Award-winning STEM project-based high school science courses. It prepares the student in the areas of engineering, mathematics, and analytical thinking. These same students can later join our robotics team and compete on the national and perhaps go to the international level. GOOOOOOO RADIANS!!!!
