EAGLE Gravois Park opened in the fall of 2017, and currently serves students in Kindergarten through 4th grade and will expand one grade per year to 8th grade.
EAGLE uses the Character Formation Project in which teachers are asked to reflect on direct examples in their own lives when character is built and put to the test. The entire school community works on character as a subject of study, thinking about how individuals acquire their character. The teachers and leaders provide a direct and consistent example of excellent character every day.
EAGLE stands for "Expecting Academic Greatness With a Loving Emphasis"
Blended learning combines teacher led instruction with computer learning. Every day the children work in small groups, both with their teachers and on the computers. The computer learning programs provide each learner individualized goals and adaptive to continuously challenge students as they grow.
Extracurriculars: Compass Educational Programs, Intersect Arts Program, Martial Arts, Basketball, Boy Scouts, the EAGLE Dance Team
After a poor experience in public school, we toured every charter school we could find, and I knew as soon as I met the founding principal, Mr. Massey, that EAGLE is the place for our kiddos. We chose GP because of the new facility as well as the principal, and have been amazed at how much our boys have flourished. The partnership with Intersect Art Center has been truly unique for us, with after-school classes for kids to explore different interests.
The only thing keeping my rating at 4 stars is the number of teachers that have left GP this year, including the principal.
