The QUEST program integrates traditional academics – English, science, history, and math – with the Hackettstown High School Life Skills curriculum. Students are actively involved in their education as they develop into contributing members of society. Over the course of four years, students will learn the tools to live self-sufficiently. The goal of QUEST is to effectively teach students how to live and work independently. This goal is accomplished through hands-on learning experiences in real life settings. Through Community Based Instruction, students will develop everyday life skills from food preparation to banking. The Structured Learning Program prepares the students for the expectations of the workplace. Upon completion of the program, students will feel confident completing daily tasks at home and at work autonomously.Community Based Instruction (CBI)Community Based Instruction (CBI) takes students into the local community to acquire and practice every day practical skills. The activities in CBI encourages students to be self-sufficient through structured everyday experiences in the community. Students are taught in real world settings by their teacher. CBI is not field trips, but thoughtful, planned encounters that students will face on a regular basis after high school. All facets of daily living are addressed through CBI. Examples of locations for CBI include: grocery stores, restaurants, post office, banks, retail shops, libraries, recreational activities, public transportation, and more. Through these activities, students are able to experience different social interactions in a safe environment.Structured Learning Program
