Moving Ahead School of Scholars

The school promotes a culture of academic excellence and will guide each student to achieving maximum academic potential. At the heart of the school’s commitment to academic excellence is the setting of high expectations and the belief that all students can learn.

This will be evidenced thoroughly, meaningfully and consistently throughout the school, in the curriculum, instruction and interactions between the staff, students and parents. The school also fosters a powerful culture that will support staff and students in the school. Vital to the success of the culture is that the school leader is structured, places the student at the core of the school, is open and transparent, makes it safe for students and teachers to experiment with new ideas and uses positive conflict resolution strategies.

Mission: Moving Ahead School of Scholars Learning Academy is committed to providing a high quality education in a supportive environment that maximizes teacher effectiveness and promotes academic achievement. The mission is to accelerate academic achievement, meet and exceed proficiency rates and prepare students to transition successfully into middle school, secondary education and post-secondary education, through an intensive STEM+Arts program, in a technology-rich environment. The aim is to foster self-confidence essential to the development of high academic skills by providing a quality standards-based school program implemented by highly skilled, nurturing professionals dedicated to excellence in education. The purpose is to dramatically increase language arts and mathematics skills, mental flexibility, creativity, divergent thinking and higher order thinking skills through a focus on science, technology, engineering, mathematics and the arts.

[02/25/15]   In alignment with its mission, the vision is to provide an exemplary personalized learning program for all students, especially those who may be considered “at-risk”, in a supportive, resource-rich learning environment, with a staff that is dedicated to academic excellence and is committed to nurturing students to become passionate lifelong learners. Engaging students in a integrated curriculum focused on STEM+Arts will increase problem solving and critical thinking skills. The STEM+Arts curriculum will create a more active learning environment. It is envisoned that there will be drawing, speaking and creative planning –and maybe some dancing- interwoven in the rigorous study of the STEM disciplines.
