Personalized Education - Focus on Mastery

A parent visiting our last open house asked me why she should consider our school when there are so many goods schools in our area. I responded that, while there are several good "traditional" public and private schools, with class sizes of 15, 20, 25 kids to one teacher, our school is really for the family that wants a more personalized educational option for their child. We provide an environment that challenges the academically-advanced child to soar beyond age level placement in these other schools. Our teachers use technology to monitor, in real time, the progress students are making, and can adjust teaching methodology or instruction to address the needs of that child. Our goal is not to cover a curriculum in advance of a standardized test, but to ensure our student understand and master the material they are being taught.

Also, with our school, there is no need to wait for a six or nine week report to know how your child is doing. Parents can just log into their online access and take a look at their child's progress through the assigned curriculum. Or, simply read the weekly reports provided by the teachers to figure out what is being taught and the child's individual strengths and weaknesses. In addition, because our teachers are not focused on prepping for a STAAR exam, they are able to focus on truly understanding each child, with the goal of the child attaining mastery of the material. To do this a school has to be flexible and adaptive, and cater to the academic needs of the individual child, and that's part of what makes us truly unique.

Learning Science Through Robust Curriculum & Hands On Experimentation

Committed to building a robust science program, we have invested in a top notch science program, developed by Rice University. We are excited to offer this program in our school. The curriculum exceeds that found in standard science courses, with integration of supplemental exercises and exploration. We are passionate about hands-on projects and labs! Almost weekly, our students are able to see concepts come alive in different ways.
