Yardstick

Yardstick is a dynamic experiential learning through engage and experimentation. The activities are taken up through a well designed program with the use of meaningful and constructive tools used in math and science lessons that patronize hand-on learning opportunities for our students.

Use of Yardstick in our classrooms benefit our students in a wide spectrum of learning as Program integration, as follows:
