Here at The Guthrie School, we work to make sure we create a learning environment that is conducive to student success. Our instructors have the unique opportunity to work with each student in order to support them getting the most out of their education. Whether students are learning in-person or online, we endeavor to provide your children the best instruction possible.

Having fewer students in each class benefits students in many ways. From being more engaged to receiving more one-on-one time, the advantages of small class sizes are important. https://ncte.org/statement/why-class-size-matters/

Our distance learning program is designed to make it as easy as possible for students and parent partners. We provide the next day’s material in advance and follow a regular learning schedule- including breaks! This helps our students feel prepared, stay on task, and keeps their attention. Here are some tips to help parent partners make their homes better learning environments! #onlinelearning #educationinamerica

At The Guthrie School, we work to constantly improve the enrichment of our students. We work with students to help them build a toolkit that will help them be successful learners. We have established a program to help your children feel more confident in learning online, and here are our best tips!

1. Make a study plan and support independent time management skills
2. Set daily and future goals
3. Eliminate distractions
4. Find a dedicated, organized, quiet space for your student to feel comfortable and focus
5. Check in on your student, but allow them the freedom to facilitate their own success
6. Limit social media and extra "screen" time

Education in America is a current concern for many parents, teachers, and schools. Are students getting the tools they need for learning? Are students absorbing the material well? What more can we do to promote student success? These are questions many families have, and finding the answers and solutions can be daunting. The Guthrie School is committed to working hard so your children are getting what they need (and more!) out of their education. #EducationInAmerica #DallasPrivateSchools

Here at Guthrie, we strive to accelerate our students’ learning and to guide them to reach their potential. We use the Socratic Method to develop academically elite students that have confidence and the skill set needed to excel academically and personally. #GetToKnowGuthrie

Now, more than ever, with the socially distant environment in which we live, students need consistency and a solid education. The Guthrie School has stepped up to the plate to provide just that. We want to show you how we are preparing for your children to get what they need to be successful in these uncertain times. We have already met the challenge of sustaining enrichment and engagement while learning online. We have done this in part by formatting our on-line model very similarly to our in-person instruction. Going forward, we will be posting informative content as well as student-life information, so you can be knowledgeable about your child’s education and get a look inside The Guthrie School.

[03/27/20]   We plan on continuing distance learning through April 10. Our faculty and staff continue to work diligently to ensure our Guthrie Owls are learning while maintaining Guthrie's high academic standards. Thank you for your continued support. #stayhealthy #staysafe

We are taking things week by week right now as conditions are rapidly changing.
