Our school day and academic calendar are longer resulting in additional instructional time over the K-6 sequence. Increased learning time allows for greater mastery of curriculum content and for increased exposure to engaging enrichment programs that develop the whole student. Students who are having difficulty keeping up with their classmates will be provided systematic, targeted remediation during the school day as well as after school to accelerate their learning. Multiple assessments also encourage students to learn in ways consistent with their individual learning styles, which increase learning opportunities.
