For upperclass students, we offer SAT preparation programs. If students have taken the SAT before, these courses guarantee an improvement in scores. If students have not previously taken the SAT, the program will familiarize students with the format of the test, as well as the test’s time constraints and guarantees an improvement between the first practice test taken and the first attempt at the SAT.
Peer-to-peer Student Tutoring
We offer a unique program for our students called peer-to-peer student tutoring. The philosophy behind these programs is that children learn from their peers, as well as teach their peers. This experience both builds self-esteem, and enhances the learning process for our students. Believe it or not, sometimes teaching something is the best way to learn it yourself. Over the years, we have found this resource to be immensely powerful. Consider signing up for this resource. It is offered throughout the school year, as well as in the summer and winter break. This is also a great way for students to continue learning and keeping up with their studies in the breaks. It is a fun and relaxed program for students to learn from each other.
Resources for Parents
We believe that parents are the student’s first, as well as the student’s more important teacher and guidance counselor.
In our programs, the student’s parents are of the utmost value to us. We believe that the most successful learning can be gained through strong connections with the student’s parents, as well as all community.
The parents of our student’s help to make sure that the highest level of student-driven learning are secured. These strong partnerships with our parents help our students to excel. The values and achievement of our school systems are due largely to our commitment to involving the student’s parents and their time spent volunteering. By dedicating their time, talent, and resources to our programs, these connections with parents help to strengthen our programs. We thank the student’s parents for their involvement, and extend the invitation to participate in our programs with open arms.
Through volunteering to read to our students, be a guest speaker, assisting with Parent-teacher organization meetings, or serving on school improvement committees, the student’s of our parents have many volunteer opportunities. We value and recognize the importance of these partner/school partnerships.
In addition to reviewing the many resources present on this website, parents are very much encouraged to get into contact with their children’s teachers and school administration for additional information about opportunities for parent contributions. We thank you in advance!
