Educational neuroscience shows how the brain evolves and changes throughout a student’s academic journey. Research on the plasticity of
the brain and learning emphasize how students can strengthen their learning
strengths while targeting their learning weaknesses.
St. Andrew’s is using that science not only to help our students
but also to share our best practices with the external learning community such
as Teach For America teachers. An association with The Johns Hopkins University School
of Education has brought one of the nation’s leading universities together with
a school that is equally committed to transforming instructional practice using
the best available cognitive research.
