Targeted Academics

We drive high academic standards through differentiated, collaborative, and inquiry-based instruction, using the Core Knowledge Sequence, a content-rich, sequential, and developmentally-appropriate curriculum that gives students the foundation needed to become capable and creative citizens who are strong readers and mathematicians. We teach with a student-centered approach where the teacher is a facilitator who serves as a personal model of how to acquire knowledge and serves as a resource to students. Our teachers individualize instruction through interpreting data derived from performance assessments thereby challenging all students to perform at their highest level.

Health and Wellness

Health and wellness are the underpinnings to student engagement, sustained attention, and ultimately, student achievement. We create an environment where exercise and healthy eating choices are the daily norm, for research has shown that exercise and a balanced, healthy diet stimulate alert, active bodies and minds in students, leading to higher academic achievement and a higher happiness factor in the school.

Peaceful Curriculum

Each teacher models, guides, and practices socio-emotional skills to give students the opportunity to discuss and resolve conflicts within themselves and without. This gives teachers and students a common language to solve problems peacefully and collaboratively, raising students’ sense of safety and ultimately, grades and performance on achievement tests.
