  • We do more with less

Our school model:

  • Focuses on equipping students with the knowledge, skills, and characteristics they need to be successful today and tomorrow
  • Flips today’s teacher-driven school environments and places students at the center. Students learn to own and drive their learning, ensuring they are empowered to be passionate, self-directed learners truly prepared for our rapidly changing society and economy.
  • Leverages technology, tools and online learning to support each student in their learning, with progress based on demonstrating competency of standards and skills, rather than progress based on seat time.
  • Creates an environment where teachers are able to spend time on high value activities, specifically facilitating deeper learning, coaching and tutoring students, and supporting every student’s individual needs.
  • Enables continuous growth and improvement by giving teachers, students and parents timely and actionable feedback.
