Academics

Champion Schools implements a rigorous, content rich curriculum. Our vision is to build powerful learning communities for ALL students, regardless of their educational backgrounds. Our learning environment includes many opportunities to work collaboratively. We use project based learning and utilize the community as a laboratory for students to have hands-on experiences. These types of learning activities activate the imagination, stimulate critical thinking and develop problem-solving skills. We believe in every student’s natural desire to learn and want to bring ALL of our students into the educational mainstream by the end of elementary school.

We began our school with the guidance of Stanford University’s Accelerated Schools Project created by Dr. Henry Levin. The idea that school communities can dramatically improve the success of students in at-risk situations by building powerful learning environments is at the heart of our academic program. Our approach combines relevant curriculum, with a focus on both mind and body to produce a creative school organization to accelerate the progress of ALL students. Students experience diverse instructional techniques and a variety of instructional staff in multiple subject areas.

In our dynamic classroom environments, students and teachers are encouraged to think creatively and explore their interests with the goal of achieving high academic standards. These standards apply to ALL students, regardless of their experiential background, capabilities or developmental learning differences. We seek out, acknowledge and build on every student’s natural curiosity, to construct knowledge through exploration and discovery and see connections between school activities and their lives outside the classroom. All of these experiences require imaginative thinking, complex reasoning and problem-solving skills.The entire curriculum is enriched and emphasizes language development in all subjects.

To ensure the level of commitment needed to accomplish our goals, students, parents and teachers agree to support specific responsibilities that they each have in the learning process. These contracts support a high level of attendance, punctuality and completion of home assignments. These aspects of school life make a huge difference in student achievement which is always our highest priority. Parents are also an important part of supporting students’ opportunities to experience relevant activities as an enhancement of the basic curriculum through field trips and study tours.

Champion Schools is a powerful learning community for ALL students, regardless of their educational backgrounds. Our school environment fosters a spirit of lifelong learning and promotes opportunities for students to work collaboratively. We implement common core standards, projects based learning, and utilize the community as a laboratory for students to have hands-on experiences. These types of learning activities activate the imagination, stimulate critical thinking and develop problem-solving skills. We provide several supplemental educational programs that extend and strengthen student’s academic abilities. These services include: a full-time reading and math interventionist, Reading Rocks Academic Club, Math Counts Academic Club, Saturday School, and before and after school tutoring. These services are provided free of cost to all students. We believe in every student’s natural desire to learn and want to bring ALL of our students into the educational mainstream by the end of elementary school.
