Core Curriculum

English Language Arts

We teach ELA using The Teachers College Reading and Writing Project. This program uses a balanced literacy approach to teach students in elementary and middle school. The two primary goals are to improve students' reading and writing, and to help children become lifelong, confident readers and writers.

 

Envision Math

The enVision math program allows students to solve problems using a hands on approach to mathematics. Students learn more about math by solving rich, reality-based problems. Through this program students gain a deeper, clearer understanding of math concepts with visual models and scaffolds in every lesson.
