Academic Highlights

Reading Program
Our reading curriculum allows for tiered instruction that both exposes students to grade level text while allowing them ample time to make independent gains on their own reading level.

Math Program
Our math curriculum engages students through challenging math tasks that require problem solving and critical thinking. Our teachers design instruction that fosters collaboration and peer feedback to enhance the learning experience.

Science Program
Science is taught with a balance of inquiry instruction that also reinforces and extends students’ literacy skills. Weekly lessons include close reading, lab experiments, and students gaining expertise in STEM areas.
