- Our Mispacha
Our institutional goal is to provide experiences that will develop the whole child, inspire academic excellence and move beyond academics to develop the visual and performing arts, physical education skills, critical thinking skills and community service.
We strive to ensure that every student is challenged, supported, successful and achieves his/her learning potential. We employ teaching methodologies that enhance each student’s learning style and pace. Through this tailored approach, we inspire excellence while ensuring that a range of learning needs is met with available resources from staff coordinators and outside support staff. Teachers tailor instruction to meet the individual needs of their students. Ongoing assessment and flexible groupings help ensure effective instruction. Blocked, uninterrupted teaching time is included as part of the school day.
Homework Help is available several times a week for Elementary School students. Math extra help is available several times a week for the Elementary and Middle Schools. Math and Science Enrichment is available twice a week for the Middle School.
We employ an array of support staff to support the needs of all our students. Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Speech Pathologists, Special Education Teachers (Resource Room) and Reading Specialists push into the classroom setting or pull students out in small groups or individually to support their academic progress.
From the Early Childhood Program through our Elementary School, the Math and English curriculum is reinforced through bi-weekly completion of specialized and skills-targeted computerized interactive programs.
