Academics

Our school is preparing graduates to succeed in high-caliber secondary schools. Here’s how:

  • Full accreditation by the Middle States Association Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools
  • Data-driven instruction and use of robust data analysis to monitor classroom results and student growth, enabling us to rapidly adjust to student needs
  • Network-wide implementation of the research-based math curriculum Eureka Math to improve student achievement in mathematics
  • Network-wide implementation of top-rated English Language Arts (ELA) curriculums: CKLA for Pre-K and EL Education for K-8
  • Hiring and training principals to be instructional leaders with a primary focus on curriculum, instruction, and supporting teachers in the classroom
  • Teacher development and coaching led by the central office team and school leader

Greeting

Students and teachers greet one other by name and practice offering hospitality.

Sharing

Students share information about important events in their lives. Listeners often offer empathetic comments or ask clarifying questions.

Group Activity

Everyone participates in a brief, lively activity that fosters group cohesion and helps students practice social and academic skills (for example, reciting a poem, dancing, singing, or playing a game that reinforces social or academic skills).

Morning Message

Students read and interact with a short message written by their teacher. The message is crafted to help students focus on the work they’ll do in school that day.
