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:

1.

Whole Child Approach

Measuring academic success to include strong character development and cultural and global engagement

2.

Student Growth and Achievement

Viewing students as individuals in their learning path and meeting them where they are in order to achieve growth

3.

Purpose-Driven Learning Environment

Promoting a learning environment that includes both joy and rigor

4.

Community

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.
