Learners of All Kinds
I saw this quote a few weeks ago and I knew I had to use it.
We are blessed with students learning at a variety of levels and speeds at our school.
We have approximately 50 % of our students who scored in the 90% or better in at least one academic subject area on our recent spring testing, the Terra Nova 3. WOW!!!
We also have about 15-20% of students who tested below the 30% in one sub-category.
We also have students who have a variety of academic challenges that need a little extra help or accommodations in the classroom to help them learn and progress on or near grade level.
Ultimately, we want to "partner with Christian parents to provide a Biblically integrated education which equips students to embrace Biblical truth, to strive for academic excellence and to exemplify Christ-like servanthood in homes, churches and communities." This is our mission statement and we truly want to live it out each day in our school. This means we are not a prep school only for academic elite. We want to help Christian families who desire Christian education for their children obtain that! It is our intent and prayer to work together with our families to help students in need keep learning - even if it is at a slower and/or faster pace!
