Our past Projects include
Central Coast New Tech High
New Tech is an instructional approach involving project-based learning, where learning is contextual, creative, and shared. With support from Pacific Gas & Electric, Central Coast New Tech High (CCNTH) opened its doors in August 2012 with a freshman class of approximately 120 students. CCNTH added another class of freshmen in 2013, and will continue to do so each year for an eventual total of 500+ students. CCNTH is part of the Lucia Mar Unified School District, open to all students. Real world skills such as critical thinking, communication, engineering and technology are emphasized. By making learning relevant and providing real-world applications of learning, student engagement is enhanced and learning is better retained. CCNTH are already sharing their teaching best practices with other schools in the district.
Grover Beach Elementary School International Baccalaureate PrograM
LMFI supports the transformation of Grover Beach Elementary School into an International Baccalaureate Magnet School. The International Baccalaureate is a rigorous, internationally recognized program of curriculum and examination emphasizing inquiry-based learning, the study of a second language, global citizenship, and the development of 21st century skills.orem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

Creativity and the arts are important to a well-rounded education and are included in the list of 21st century skills needed to succeed in college and career. Our new initiative will work with our schools to encourage and foster instruction that develop skills in this area and enrich the student experience. Our first project is a district-wide art contest, in partnership with the El Camino Arts Association. This will help raise awareness and establish support for future projects in the area.
