OUR EDUCATIONAL APPROACH
Our 4 Tenets
of Teaching & Learning
Miles Ahead is structured around the following four tenets within our instructional design of teaching and learning:
Whole Child Approach
Measuring academic success to include strong character development and cultural and global engagement
Student Growth and Achievement
Viewing students as individuals in their learning path and meeting them where they are in order to achieve growth
Purpose-Driven Learning Environment
Promoting a learning environment that includes both joy and rigor
Engaging community members and families in the activities of school life to enhance the learning of our students
With these 4 tenets, we make sure that we are focused on the key aspects of making the learning experience a positive one for all of our students.
Experience at MACS
MACS is dedicated to meeting the needs of our digital natives. This means rethinking the current practices in education and offering a curriculum that speaks to the world our students were born into. Our days for our students are filled with engagement and learning appropriate for each age group.
With their academic curriculum, students will also be engaged in innovative instruction throughout their day to reinforce the application of their learning to real world situations, as well as to continuing to develop their character as social-emotional global citizens.
Components on our innovative instruction includes:
2 Content Areas + Power Hour allows for deeper master, better teaching, and way more learning!
STEM, Field Experts, Science Lab, Coding, and Performing Arts program drive a full day of immersive experiences.
21st Century Skills
Coding as a language, social media training, and computer usage training for your digital native.
Crew for SEL
Social Emotional Learning for at least 1 hour each day helps our students understand the importance of goal setting and reflection.
