We stress the basics of reading, writing, and mathematics (including cursive writing, spelling, and phonics) - giving each student a good foundation for other subjects. Students needing additional help are provided free tutoring after school. We pride ourselves on a low student-to-teacher ratio of 12 to 1. Our teachers (degreed, certified, and experienced) develop age-appropriate activities that introduce and strengthen academic and social skills. In addition to the ‘basics,’ we offer students a range of gross motor and creative opportunities including organized team sports. We strive to include enrichment activities that extend our students knowledge and understanding of the world outside the classroom with field trips and class presentations by professionals.
We select the most well-rounded, challenging curriculum for each subject and for each grade level. We use the traditional classroom approach with teacher instruction, textbooks, workbooks, classroom discussion, research, lab experiments, lectures, cooperative learning, teacher and peer tutoring, hands-on-discovery projects, and field trips. High school graduates are well prepared for college. ACT report shows our graduates are 100% prepared to achieve grades of "B" or higher in all 4 major areas of study.
