How we meet the needs of our students
Meet a group of kids who will help you learn to read. Each character has its own unique personality. Students meet all the kids in kindergarten and grow with them until 2nd grade. The SuperKids teach phonics skills in a fun and engaging way that the kids will never forget!
Engage New York
A Common Core math program that focuses on fewer topics to build mastery of math topics. Each lesson begins with a fluency practice to help review previously covered topics and build confidence and speed. Lessons use a variety of math manipulatives and methods to help students experience math in a fun new exciting way. Children are exposed to multiple strategies to meet all students learning needs and to master the math concepts in the Common Core.
Meet JiJi the math penguin. JiJi creates an individual learning plan for each student. By introducing all math concepts visually--without any text whatsoever--ST Math programs clear the language hurdle and can be more stimulating to young children. Once a student has acquired a visual understanding of fundamental concepts, then symbolic representations of math are layered in. Children are able to move at their own pace and work through hurdles to achieve math mastery!
An online program to help build students digital literacy skills. Easy Tech will equip students with critical skills including keyboarding, word processing, digital citizenship and online safety. Students work at their own pace to complete lessons focused on key computer skills. Each lesson is composed of a brief video and an interactive piece. Then the students are given the opportunity to practice the skill in a fun way.
