Student Opportunity for Advanced Rigor

Adjust pacing to differentiate curriculum and instruction
Project based learning to extend concepts and add academic rigor
Personalized Learning Plans (PLP)
Each child has a data driven Personal Learning Plan that is created in cooperation with the parent, student (when applicable) and includes individual goals and objectives in the areas of academics, life and career skills and 21st century skills.
Teachers are trained to use ongoing formative data to plan and teach to meet the learning needs of each child.
- PLPs are sent out mid-trimester.
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.
Insects pollinate many kinds of plants. What if the right insects aren’t around to do the work? The storybook Mariana Becomes a Butterfly shows how one girl solves a pollination problem. In this unit, students become agricultural engineers. They’ll apply their knowledge of insects, insect life cycles, pollination, and natural systems as they test a variety of materials, then engineer their own technologies for pollinating plants by hand.
