Begin with the end in mind.
When they leave eighth grade, our graduates are ready for success anywhere — in Honors, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs, in public schools, private schools and parochial schools, from STEM curriculums to classical curriculums, and beyond. Our traditional, skills-based, preparatory curriculum equips each student with the foundations needed for these paths, or any other path they choose. Our curriculum is informed by expert sources that include national groups (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics or National Council for the Social Studies, for example), specialized subject-matter programs (Fountas and Pinnell or Wilson Fundations, for example), and well-regarded educational publishers. Our teachers also design, modify and supplement much of our curriculum.
We do not believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach to teaching and learning. A variety of instructional practices can be seen in our classrooms each day, and we will often accelerate our curriculum based on student needs. Additionally, a fee-based Learning Support Program assists students with academic fluency differences.
