The Goddard School Located In Bethlehem, PA Named A 21st Century Learning Exemplar, A National Recognition Of Educational Excellence

November  07, 2017 / P21 has designated The Goddard School as a 21st Century Learning Exemplar for 2017-2018. The Goddard School earned this award for its outstanding practices in equipping students with the necessary skills and knowledge for success in college, career, and life.

In order to become part of the P21 Exemplar Program, schools and districts must demonstrate not just an adequate implementation of the Framework for 21st Century Learning, but also expertise in the elements of: Student Agency, Distributed Leadership, a Climate of Achievement, Engaged Community, and use of Evidence and Research.

"We are very excited to be a part of the P21 Exemplar program. As educators, it is our job to ensure that we not only prepare our children for school, but also prepare them for life. In addition to our STEAM curriculum, we help cultivate skills in collaboration, communication and critical and creative thinking," explains Dolly Kalsi, on-site owner of The Goddard School.

Our recent expansion includes areas such as an indoor gym, science and art porches and a saltwater aquarium to continue expanding 21st century learning,” adds Monty Kalsi, on-site owner of The Goddard School.

David Ross, CEO at P21 stated, “P21’s Exemplar Program works to identify innovative education paradigms across the country. When policymakers say ‘show me what you mean,’ we turn to our P21 Exemplars for hard evidence.”  

As part of uplifting the best practices from The Goddard School, P21 will develop a case study and release it to the public for free download at p21.org/exemplars in the Spring of 2018.
