A structured, sequential curriculum leads our students through a planned process of learning and understanding from early reading proficiency and comfort with numerical systems to the inferential, abstract, deductive and inductive reasoning necessary to become effective problem solvers, communicators and life-long learners. Academic support is provided by classroom teachers and in-school resource specialists.
Academic success within subject areas is evaluated through varied and appropriately authentic methods. Formal and Informal assessments, individual and small group interactive projects and demonstrations, as well as assessments of written assignments and verbal presentations, are among the evaluative methodologies used to gauge student progress and guide instruction.
