At CRS, recognition of children’s diverse learning styles is a fundamental aspect of our educational program. Our small class structure and team teaching approach allow us to meet students at their individual levels and to differentiate instruction in meaningful ways. Whether a child needs extra support in an area or demonstrates readiness for additional challenges, we understand each child as an individual and support them appropriately.
At each grade level, classroom teachers, specialists, and our Student Support Team collaborate on an ongoing basis to assess and support students. This team meets regularly to discuss each child’s academic and developmental progress; children’s social/emotional well-being is an important component of these meetings.
Parents are an integral part of our team and we partner with them to help define and meet students’ needs. We are committed to ongoing collaboration and communication with parents throughout their child’s years at CRS.
Our Learning Specialist develops an individual learning plan for students in need of additional support. These plans guide teachers in providing a classroom environment with student supports including accommodations in the areas of instruction, organization, focus/attention, assessment, and assistive technology.
