Learning and Extra Curricular

English

 

The English curriculum challenges students to develop their writing, grammar, and literature skills. Students gain a greater understanding of abstract ideas found in literature, develop the ability to write clearly and accurately, and strengthen literary, reading, informational, vocabulary and writing skills. A humanities approach helps the adolescent learner have more relevance to his/her academics.

 

Math 

 

Students progress through the math sequence according to their background and ability. Courses begin with 6th grade math and can conclude with Geometry , depending upon the progress of the student.

 

History

 

The 6th and 7th grades study World Cultures with an emphasis on World Geography and how each region developed economically, politically, and socially. 8th grade is a survey course of American History, with an emphasis on connecting the past to the present. Required readings in both grades supplement a student’s understanding of the world around them.

Reading 

__________

Using an integrated cross curricular approach, students are exposed to a variety of genres and learn how to interact with text while strategically applying a variety of comprehension strategies to make sense of text on explicit and implicit levels.

Math

_________

The Math Program approach allows students to learn math their way with one-on-one and small group support from the facilitator. Students explore various avenues of problem solving without always following a stringent algorithmic approach.

Science 

_________

Learning science is an action that goes beyond reading a textbook; therefore, students approach science in an interactive and hands-on laboratory setting which solidifies an understanding of concepts while developing a desire to discover more.

History 

________

History comes to life as the students delve into historical perspectives and interact with the concepts of the time period. Students use a thematic approach to fully develop a deeper understanding of history by viewing time periods through multiple perspectives while also tying history to present day.
