Additionally, we offer enhanced instruction through technology, additional resources, and academic programs. Our research-based curriculum ensures our scholars are on the road to being college-ready once they complete our academic program. Scholars who are disadvantaged receive support during and after our academic school day. Our entire population is addressed by targeting advanced students, proficient students, and the bottom 30%. A special emphasis is put on web-based individualized learning curriculums that allow us to create specialized student learning paths. These programs include Edgenuity, MAP Skills, and push in/pull out intervention model to support our core subjects.
