About the Learning Program

Our emphasis on personalized learning allows teachers to honor where each child is in their development and to guide them to mastery at their own pace. Our students will continually “level up.” This differs from the calendar and age driven model of social promotion.

Students are organized in mixed age groupings with small class sizes. We strive for Technology to be an intentional part of the methods and our curriculum will be aimed at high achievement and best practice aligned to the Minnesota State Standards. This does not mean your student is in front of a screen the entire day!
