how does pbl benefit my student?

Students who experience PBL in high school have an advantage as compared to students from a more traditional education environment. Not only do students benefit from the rigorous academic demands that exist in a PBL classroom, but they develop and display the crucial "soft skills", or as we call them "essential skills", that will last them throughout their lifetime.
