Our Approach

 

Our belief is simple: Set high standards, make expectations clear, provide meaningful instruction, and watch children excel. Every student is given the tools for success – in and out of the classroom. With a commitment to hard work, good citizenship, and personal responsibility, students experience a safe, secure learning environment where achievement thrives.
 

Develop great teachers – Disciplined, dedicated, and determined to motivate
each child

  • Our teachers know the importance of establishing a relationship with a child before teaching can begin.
  • They take the time to understand students as individuals to better determine their educational and emotional needs to ensure academic success.
  • They assess students frequently to give timely feedback and adjust instruction.
  • They use proven instructional practices and classroom management techniques.
 

Teach creativity, commitment, fair play, and more

Enrichment classes are an important part of a child’s development and an important part of the school day, providing a time to explore the joy of movement, music, creative expression, or another culture.
 
We also know the value of extra-curricular activities and organized athletics. More than just fun, our after school activities and sports programs teach teamwork, mental focus, fair play, and commitment.
 

Provide guidance when it’s time to take the next step

We know how to support each child’s transition to high school. Beginning in middle school, each student is assigned an advocate. The advocate provides step-by-step guidance for high school academic and enrollment requirements.
 
Our students make a smooth transition to high schools in the area and arrive equipped for academic and social success.

Great teachers develop great students by creating an environment of high standards.
