Since our inception, our school has been dedicated to educating the whole child by offering a rich-dynamic educational program. We provide an exciting alternative to traditional schools. Our classroom is based on developmentally appropriate teaching methods that accommodate the whole child with respect to individual learning styles, developmental readiness, and rates of achievement. A high level of parent participation, community involvement, project-based learning, student-driven learning, and social emotional learning generally contribute to developing our environment into a world-class learning community.
Our focus is too foster life-long learners and build programs that foster thinking which is original, critical, collaborative, and reflective.
Teachers are encouraged to develop a creative environment that fosters students becoming a real part of their own learning. Teachers also create their own curriculum based on their students' needs and interests while still teaching to the standards.
At our charter, we have a home school program that provides a classroom community and experience to students and their families twice a week. This allows for parents and their students to follow a curriculum path how they choose and apply their learning in a project-based, comfortable classroom environment.
Flex-space learning environments are extremely important to a comfortable, effective home-school classroom environment. Students in home school programs have the freedom to do work where they choose, whether it be the kitchen counter, the living room couch, or on the grass in their backyard.
Since our home school program moved from a classroom with storage, to a portable with four walls, we will need comfortable and organized storage space to make our classroom feel like a home.
That is my goal this year since I have a new classroom space to work with - to have their classroom feel as comfortable as their home. In order to do that, we need multi-purpose furniture that organizes materials as well as allows for seating space.
