  • How do you handle student behavior problems?
    We know that a student's behavior problems mostly stem from: a chaotic classroom culture boring, irrelevant curriculum uncaring, disconnected staff a lack of student accountability by parents Knowing this, we use positive behavior intervention and supports (PBIS) to proactively guide student behavior insteading of punishing or reacting to challenging student behaviors. Some of the ways we support and reinforce positive behavior is by: Getting to Know our Students and Families Building Positive Relationships with our Students and Families Providing Class Rewards for Exceptional Behavior Implementing a Visual, Daily Schedule Using Positive Language, Positive Affirmations Verbally Praising Good Behaviors & Ignoring Negative Attention-Seeking Behaviors Writing Observations of Children's Mood, Play and Interests Planning for Engaging Activities and Individualizing Lesson Plans based on Observations
  • What do you do if a child has failing grades? Do you tutor kids?
    We welcome open communication with our parents to keep us updated on children's report card grades, academic goals and concerns as well as standardized test scores so that we can monitor progress, modify our curriculum and individualize our instruction prior to getting news of failing grades. We want to align what we are teaching here to what children are already learning at school and what they need to learn at their grade level. So family partnerships and transparency is key. Yes--We offer personalized tutoring for remediation and enrichment. We currently include tutoring service in our tuition cost. We value academic excellence and do not want our students to fail by any means.
