I have the opportunity to peek inside our classrooms and see the work our teachers and students are doing each day. My visits to the classrooms are part of our professional growth and evaluation model. As part of this model, we actively observe our teachers through formal observations, classroom walkthroughs, and feedback. I see teachers having their students create connections in their learning, develop strategies to use when they may feel stuck, and dig deeper in building their understanding.
Summer is here, and we encourage our students to continue exploring and investigating the world around them. What better way is there to learn something new than to sit down in a cozy spot with a great book! During the summer of 2019, children are expected to read at least two books: the required book(s) for their grade and a book of their choice. This summer, our entire school including our students in K-9 and our Faculty are reading books about the environment!
UNDERSTANDING YOUR CHILD IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY...AND OUR GREATEST STRENGTH!
At Rectory, we know not all students learn the same way. Rectory’s supportive environment enables us to create a Personalized Learning Plan that fits your child. Our signature Individualized Instruction Program (IIP) allows students to build skills, develop executive functioning strategies, and gain the remediation and enrichment they need to thrive in a challenging academic program.
At Rectory, we build a foundation of core academic skills, create powerful learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom, and foster strong ethical and social values. The result is students who understand themselves and the world around them; students who are prepared for their next school and for life.
