Academics

Students receive an integrated education that provides them with academic knowledge and assists them in their own personal development. Differentiated learning is utilized within the classrooms that will address the different learning styles of the students and meet their individual needs. At each grade level there is a literature based reading program and a bilingual component program in Grades K-8. These programs concentrate on the development of comprehension skills, vocabulary enhancement, higher order thinking skills, and analysis. Grammar and other techniques required for all forms of written expression are incorporated into both the reading and language arts classes as well as other curricula areas. Students learn to develop all types of writing styles that will be used in the real world. Reading and writing development are also integrated and developed in all of the curricula areas of study.
