The Role of This School…
We strive to promote education through core subjects
using a teacher-centered approach.
Students will be educated not only on an academic
level, but on a character-building level as well.
The Physical Environment…
This school will have four classrooms for each grade
level. One classroom per grade level will be an ITC/CTT
classroom to meet the needs of students with IEPs.
The print-rich environment of the school will promote
learning and education regardless of where students are
throughout the day.
Desks will be arranged in each classroom so they are
facing the board to ensure all students are consonantly
facing the direction that learning is taking place.

Our philosophy of education is that students should
learn core curriculum in a rigorous, teacher-centered
classroom. We believe students should be prepped

character. Good character and commitment to
education combined will result in success.
