Our teachers are a cut above-nearly 100 percent of our teachers are certified and more than half hold advanced degrees. We are committed to preparing our teachers with the best methods available. Teachers spend approximately 9 days a year in curriculum development and in specific subject areas. Each teacher is also given the opportunity to visit other classrooms and provided funds to attend a professional workshop. Our teachers have been trained in the 4MAT model of teaching, a natural cycle for delivering instruction to all types of learners. Teachers participate in study groups where curriculum and assessment tools are discussed and 4MAT units are written.
