We believe that children learn and behave best in an environment where they are respected, challenged yet supported, and feel a sense of accomplishment each day which reinforces a love for learning.
All learning occurs through direct instruction methods as well as personalized systems of instruction. Each student is able to move at his or her own pace. Intervention and remediation is given for topics/areas in which the student is unable to meet mastery and demonstrate competency.
In addition to all of the Core Curriculum subjects (ELA/Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies), all students participate in a Social Skills Curriculum to enhance personal skills, friend and family relationships, and potential employee/employer relationships.
