What Is Personalized Learning?
First, we assess the student’s skills with a computer-based diagnostic test that gives an accurate gauge of their reading and math levels. Teachers use this to customize a curriculum and academic action plan. Students can study two subjects at a time (vs. six in traditional school) and work at their own pace to master each subject area. The students are assigned to a supervising teacher — who identifies and addresses any adversity to learning – as well as a team of subject-specific teachers with whom they meet at least once a week to review their personalized lessons, get help with assignments and complete tests. Students are provided with free tutors in math and English; small group-based instruction labs; and full-time counselors who provide social, emotional and academic mentorship and guidance.
