We have three basic missions: Moving Students Forward, Parental Support, and Supporting District Initiatives
Key to our mission. We believe that while students are in a transitional period, focusing on working alongside the student while coordinating with the classroom teacher, ensures optimal results. By doing this, and to fully engage and bring confidence to each student, we know that we can move students forward, seamlessly, while supporting educational equity.
To enhance the students understanding of a given subject we encourage all parents to be active in their child’s education. We advise parents to take an active role to insure high yet reasonable expectations for their child’s achievement in planning common goals. Our tutors/specialists realize that a transition can cause frustration, however we are prepared to support and encourage parents to be persistent yet work as a team in educating their child.
To provide optimal educational supportive services and effective communication, which compliments the coordinated efforts between students, parents, teachers, and district administration.
