The Spire Fellowship through Together Tulsa brings together several key elements of effective and engaging education. The project-based curriculum not only teaches industry-specific skills, but also incorporates instruction and practice of soft skills that are essential for success beyond high school. For our students, the high level of student choice involved in the projects significantly increased student engagement. Beyond the academic impact, our students have greatly benefited socially, professionally, and emotionally from the opportunity to explore local issues and be a voice for change in their community.
