  • Faculty / Staff: Our teachers are licensed by the state of Arizona and highly qualified in their content areas. All of our teachers have experience in both traditional classrooms and online learning. Our teachers also act as grade-level advisors, lead extra-curricular clubs, and facilitate everything from field trips to social events.

Learning is an active and social process where students are able to build relationships, problem solve, and collaborate while applying the standards.

CORE CURRICULUM
Our standards based curriculum is engaging, interactive, and computer-based. This online curriculum allows us to provide real time assessment and intervention. It also provides our students with the opportunity to acquire the skills needed, so that more in-depth learning can take place in the classrooms.

HUMANITIES BLOCK
Our humanities block integrates units of study across the language arts and social studies curriculum. Our goal is to connect the curriculum to real-world through: Reader’s/Writer’s workshop, service-based learning, industry connections, and project-based learning.

EXPERIENCES

Our goal is to provide our students with opportunities to regularly engage with the community along with regularly scheduled field experiences. This provides students with the opportunity to apply the curriculum in a real-world setting and to see themselves as active citizens.
