Our Standard-Based curricula is focused on Student Centered Learning, where students/teachers/parents are active participants in the learning process. Integral to this philosophy is the fluidity of our curricular programming. We’ve found our students learn most effectively when offered a mix of curricula, selected for their application methodology, supplemental components, and outcome measures.
Our Elementary Curriculum is developed by following the Florida BEST Standards. Our teachers break down the subject matter into smaller “learning targets” working towards mastery by the end of the year. Teachers track student progress, give appropriate feedback, and adapt instruction to meet student needs.
Conceptual Math is a teaching method of proven results designed with a careful sequence of concepts. It allows students to engage in a concrete way through the use of manipulatives, in a pictorial way through visual representations, and in an abstract way through mathematical symbols. Students learn to truly understand the meaning of numbers and develop a toolbox of strategies to solve problems in multiple ways.
We will assign prescriptive homework on an as-needed basis. In addition, students will be asked to read daily and practice math facts, if needed. Teachers will communicate with parents if a need arises in which individual students need additional assistance at home or enrichment and will provide resources.
