When it comes to our approach, we believe that:
Curriculum, instruction and assessment are continuously strengthened to enable students to be:
To accomplish these ends, the program is designed so learners seamlessly transition from one level to another and adapts to each child’s developmental phase and readiness.
Assessments are used to guide instruction for teachers, students and parents to plan learning throughout the school year. Each assessment provides teachers, students and parents with targets that prepare students for the challenges of college, work and life. The assessments are given at designated times throughout the school year and students receive regular feedback on academic progress. In addition, teachers meet biweekly in data teams to review students’ progress toward the mastery of standards and develop tiered instruction to meet the needs of both struggling students and students who need to be challenged. Finally, grade level lead teachers report progress of students on a monthly basis in building data teams to ensure adequate measures are taken to ensure students’ growth.
