Academics

Our school uses a curriculum centered on improving all students’ ability to read. It is critical that all of our students are able to read on grade level before leaving middle school, so we work tirelessly to close students’ reading gaps each day. All of our students are expected to read multiple texts each day – and a variety of them – passages, excerpts, articles, books, novels, and more. Students read across all subject areas – reading/language arts, math, science and social studies – and in support classes, too. Our curriculum requires students to engage in discussion with each other about what they’re learning in all subjects, write about what they’re learning and question each other, their teachers and their texts to deepen their learning. Students are expected to complete homework each night, to practice what they’ve learned in class.
