Continuous Learning: SCS will utilize assessment results to make decisions that improve student learning and teaching practice.
Responsive Classrooms: This is an approach that will incorporate students’ social and emotional growth into their academic growth. Students within SCS responsive classrooms will be challenged, stimulated, safe, and respectful.
Integration of Agricultural Science: To extend the rigorous college preparatory program, students will be exposed to agricultural science through project-based learning, experiential learning within the community, and hands-on opportunities to use resources surrounding the school community. Students will have a skill set in agricultural science and technology through real world projects that require critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Extended Instructional Time: SCS will provide more time on task with an extended day and school year. This means 183 instructional days at 6.5 hours each day, which equates to over 124 more hours of instruction each year than students in traditional schools.
After School Program: In addition to more instructional time, an after school program will be available for our students, with drop off as early as 7:00 a.m. and pick up as late as (but no later than) 6:00 p.m.
The Maumelle Charter Lottery will be held on March 1st at 4pm in the Falcon’s Nest (the cafeteria).
