  • "We Keep Classes Small - Our school's classroom size ranges from 15-18 students per class. Many of these classes also include the support of a teacher's aide. These two factors allow our teachers to know each student better, individualize the learning experience, and have a closer relationship with parents and guardians."

  • "We Start Young - Our Pre-k school offers an academically rigorous program for 4-year-olds. Students in K-1st grade may stay until as late as 6 p.m. in our After Care Action program where the learning and fun continues."

Every child in grade 2 and up participates in our Extended Day which keeps students learning until-4:45. Our students participate in math and reading lessons if they are behind. If they are caught up on their studies, they participate in other educational or character enrichment programs."
  • "Student Support Services - Our school partners with Little Bit Foundation, Eye Care Charity of Mid-America, and Children's Hospital to provide health screenings, glasses, personal care items, clothing, books and more so our students can focus on their learning."
  • Extracurriculars: Student Council, Soccer, Basketball, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, Language Development, Art Club, Choir, Computer Club
  • Special Education: Follows the Missouri compliance model for special education: students are identified by parents or teachers, then tested using standard tests (ie. WIC and WRAT) by a licensed outside provider, if it is deemed appropriate. Students with identified learning problems or disabilities are educated according to the requirements of their IEP.
  • Parent Involvement: Parents are asked to actively participate in their child's education by having regular contact with their teacher, attending field trips and assemblies. Parents can also join the PTO. The Principal has an open door policy, so any parent who wishes to meet with her can do so to discuss their child's education.
  • As a neighborhood charter school, we serve students from our specific neighborhood, defined as being within a 2 mile radius of our school campus
