Q. Is it possible for my student to take an elective course or participate in sports at our local school?
We encourage families to talk directly first with their local school’s principal. We have experienced great success with this particular scenario. It does however require the approval of the local school’s principal to allow your student to be on school grounds during school hours.
Q. About the home-visits every two weeks. Is that a requirement, or is this part of your program flexible?
We have learned that every student requires an individualized approach. At our charter, the staff and teachers strive to make every experience a positive one. For example, if your family would prefer fewer home visits but more email interaction, we are happy to make this accommodation for you.
Q. Is my student required to participate in state testing through your program?
Yes. Like every other public school, we receive state funds to operate our school and therefore must meet state requirements in reference to state testing.
Q. What about students who don't speak English?
ESL classes, in addition to other language-level appropriate coursework, are offered through a live virtual classroom Mondays through Thursdays. ESL students will receive individualized instruction from an instructor who guides the students through a standards-based and culturally relevant curriculum.
