Our teachers employ the principals of Differentiated Instruction and the Schoolwide Enrichment Model to present curricular concepts. Teachers design instruction focusing on essential questions that assist in the development of lessons designed to meet the individual needs of students while encouraging problem-solving behaviors. Teachers proactively plan varied approaches to what students need to learn (content), how students will learn (process) and how students will express what they have learned (product).
