Private-Public School Partnership Launching This Fall

In a private-public partnership this fall, instructors from Crane Country Day School will train for a year at Dos Pueblos High School’s famed Engineering Academy (DPEA) before returning to their K-8 Montecito campus for the 2016 launch of its own state-of-the-art engineering program. For their part, the two trainees ​ ​will teach Dos Pueblos students and generally support DPEA founder and 2010 MacArthur Foundation Fellow Amir Abo-Shaeer. Crane breaks ground this summer on the 6,700-square-foot Oak Tree Quad, where 6th-8th graders will be taught via an age-appropriate DPEA-inspired curriculum.
