Quest & Inquiry Community
Welcome to the School of Quest & Inquiry
The School of Quest and Inquiry, also known as Q & I is one of the five small learning communities at Decatur Central High School. Q & I focuses on the student-centered learning process of Inquiry, in which the teacher acts as a facilitator of the learning process and the student is fully engaged in this process.
The teacher creates real-world learning environments that employ a context in which learning is relevant and meaningful to the students. Teachers include activities that involve the student as an active learner in a problem-based learning environment.
The inquiry-approach encourages students to learn to question things. The students collaborate with others and exchange ideas. A goal for students is to learn to think critically and at a higher level and to solve problems both independently and collaboratively.
