The Excellence Model

This model is the basis for the 2012 National Blue Ribbon Schools Award from the U.S. Department of Education in the category of Exemplary High-Performing Schools.

High Academic Standards

 

Our rigorous academic program is aimed at supporting all children in reaching their maximum potential. Every child has a personalized learning plan that tracks achievements, strengths, areas of improvement, goals, and progress.

Extended School Days

 

A longer school day allows us to provide instruction in core subjects and well-rounded educational enrichment. Students receive lessons in a safe, reliable learning environment.

Liberal Arts Curriculum

 

Our schools provide instruction in the core subject areas of language arts, math, science and social studies, as well as classes in music, art, dance, physical education, foreign language, and technology to promote foundational academic knowledge and critical thinking skills. 

 

Flexible Learning Groups

 

Our program is designed to engage students through a challenging curriculum and supportive learning environment. We offer flexible and easily adaptable learning groups that are tailored to each child’s specific needs.

Mandatory School Uniforms

 

School uniforms help to reduce socio-economic tensions that might otherwise distract students from learning, while providing a public symbol of unity and pride.

Behavioral Standards

 

Our schools cultivate a nurturing, yet highly accountable learning environment. Reduced student-to-teacher ratios allow more frequent and personalized interactions between students and staff members.

Family & Community Engagement

 

Our schools promote collaboration and engagement with our families and communities to support our scholars. Parents play an active role within the school community, and we build partnerships with local businesses and organizations to support our initiatives.

Organizational Learning

 

We are committed to the development of our staff and to building leadership within our organization. We ensure that our employees receive extensive professional development which contributes to the overall success of our schools and community.
