Description

HALLMARKS OF OUR PROGRAM AND PHILOSOPHY INCLUDE: An arts program that not only includes dedicated arts classes in visual arts, music, drama, and theater, but uses the arts in the classroom to make learning accessible and to help students express their learning and understanding. A project approach to learning in which students and teachers develop guiding questions, spend a significant amount of time researching and answering that question, and then find effective ways to present their learning. Through this approach students dig deeper and develop critical thinking skills. A focus on literacy and develop the love and appreciation of reading-starting from the first days of Kindergarten. Parent-School Partnership where parents and educators work collaboratively, assuming the best intentions of each other, to build a rich, vibrant learning community. This includes a family volunteer commitment of 40 hours per year and A Board of Directors that includes parents, teachers and students. A play-based kindergarten which engages students in the world of school, acclimates them to the social world of school, and begins to develop a love of learning while building numeracy and literacy skills through play. A Reggio Emilia inspiration that underlies our commitment to the arts, the honoring of the individuality of our students, attention the physical environment and explicit efforts to build classroom and school communities. Celebrating Diversity in all its forms. Guided by a strong diversity statement, City Neighbors embraces its fully integrated community as we prepare our students for a vibrant, diverse world. A middle school that includes an advisory program, daily small group tutoring, elective choices, Algebra in 8th grade, and a small teacher-student ratio. Relationships form the foundation of our community, teaching, and learning. A commitment to building strong,, open, and caring relationships between adults and students, teachers and their colleagues, and teachers and parents.
