Accelerated Schools offers a highly competitive curriculum for students who are gifted and talented, as well as those students who need remediation. Our special education scope allows us to make accommodations for students with ADHD, ADD, Bipolar, ASD, OCD, anxiety, depression, attachment disorder, ELL, etc. We value each individual who comes to Accelerated Schools.
All student enrollments are individualized; students may start any day of the year. A student’s studies are completed when attendance and academic requirements are met, and the student has proven proficiency in the subject area. Due to this unique model, the graduation date can differ from the traditional end of May graduation.
Our instructors use individualized in-person learning supplemented with Google Classroom and other educational platforms to help students succeed in different subject areas. We want our students to be equipped for the next step of their life after they graduate.
An average student-teacher ratio of 7:1 allows substantial faculty-student interaction. Each student receives a report card at the end of every school day. This daily evaluation ensures a close and constant screening of the student’s progress toward fulfilling identified needs.
Students earn points on a scale from 0 to 10 in each class period. In order to earn points, students are expected to be in a seat, on task, and working. We believe in mastery-based learning; if a student has not mastered a subject adequately, an “incomplete” status is given until they meet the minimum passing grade requirements. Final grades are based upon the daily scores’ average and the demonstration of mastery and understanding in the subject.
