Decatur – One year ago today Decatur's Dennis Elementary teamed up with Millikin University to create a new lab school.
Students have been engaged in learning like never before. Thanks to donations from Saint Mary's Hospital and the James Millikin Estate, Dennis students understand the importance of evidence based learning.
Principal of Dennis, Matt Andrews says the big focus of this collaboration with Millikin is to ultimately increase student achievement. "Our students receive opportunities that we would not be able to offer without Millikin and its close proximity, so it's just been a win-win situation."
The Dennis Lab School has implemented a project-based learning system, where students learn hands on with technology and data.
