Our learning model
Low ratios allow our extraordinary instructors to meet your student where they are, to modify curriculum, assignments, and tests to ensure that each student is truly learning the material in a stress-free environment. Our students learn best with hands on projects, movement, music, and other multi-media methods of teaching.
Each student’s curriculum is uniquely designed according to their individual and specialized needs. This will typically look like:
3:1 student/teacher ratio in English Language Arts, Reading Comprehension, and Math
5:1 student/teacher ratio in Science, Science Lab, History, Geography, Executive Functioning, Music, Art and Language
Working with the JCC, our unique physical education program offers students classes in aquatics, tae kwon do, tennis, yoga, and conditioning throughout the week. Incorporating our whole-child vision, science and history classes include a hands-on weekly lab. Throughout the year we offer field trips, team building and service projects centered around the curriculum. Trust, team building exercises and other accelerated experiential adventures are incorporated to enhance our program.
Our specialists have substantial Learning Disability (LD) experience and teach a multi-sensory curriculum that helps students absorb and retain information. Specialists also provide students with strategies that help build on their academic skills. Our reading specialists have a variety of expertise and training. Many are certified Orton Gillingham specialists. Writing courses incorporate project-based learning, research skills, and public speaking.
Our parents are our guides. We coordinate and collaborate with them every step of the way. Although we structure our curriculum to ensure well-rounded and thorough lessons – we also work with parents to understand and meet the future goals of each student.
