Education is critical for life success
We believe the early elementary years can setup a child for lifelong success in their schooling. The habits they form and the passion and interest they get in learning about science, math, arts, music, social studies, Spanish, and physical education are as important as to what knowledge and skills they retain.
Learn through experiments and the scientific method
They experiment with science and learn through the Scientific Method, teaching them how to make an observation, question/hypothesize (what could happen after observing), manipulate an experiment, and analyze (prepares the student to draw a conclusion/solution).
Electronics support rapid learning
Every class is equipped with Smartboards, IPADS, and computers to establish technological understanding and execute electronic learning. IPADS are provided and are automatically supplied with a digital library available for every student to use. Online learning programs most commonly utilized in our academy include Reading Eggs, Read theory, Time for Kids online, ABC Mouse, Brain Pop, and Reflex Math.
EXCEPTIONAL EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
The fun keeps going in our aftercare program. Extracurricular activities such as ballet, cheer leading, soccer, basketball, and robotics are offered for students to be active physically and mentally. A schedule is followed where students have enough time to eat a snack (included for free in the aftercare tuition), get help on homework, and have recess until the end of dismissal. For an additional fee, tutoring is also provided by our teachers in the school.
SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING ARE IMPORTANT PART OF OUR PROGRAMS
Cloud9World offers a distinct way for students to learn socially and emotionally. Through this program, students learn the importance of character and the true meaning behind the values of honesty, gratitude, and kindness. Daily recess is also included along with healthy lunches that are free, in addition to breakfast and snack.
SMALL CLASS SIZES ARE IMPORTANT TO PROVIDE PERSONALIZED ATTENTION
Signing up for an education with Springview also includes small class sizes for a more personal one-on-one learning experience. There is a low student to teacher ratio giving more attention towards the students and their individual learning needs. Teacher assistants are also readily available to help out wherever is needed.
NO FSA TESTING
While tests are a major part of other schools, at Springview there is no FSA testing. Testing creates an artificial teaching drive that causes some teachers to only “teach to the test” and skip over important information in order to make the test’s deadline. This is not the case nor will it ever be a problem at Springview. It is ensured that our teachers will teach simply for their love of educating our future leaders to establish strong real-world skills, not a simple yes or no answer. There will be testing included in our education, but it will not hinder the learning process and students will not be penalized no matter the outcome. It will also not be a fundamental principle in our program. We believe in creating well-rounded students with optimal knowledge that is taught beyond a singular test.
Engineering and math allow students to come up with new and unconventional ways to solve a problem and think critically. They gain knowledge in building and constructing which also leads to the arts.
FAMILY LIKE ENVIRONMENT
At Springview Academy, we cherish offering a family-like environment where all students, parents, and staff can feel comfortable knowing they are all being cared for and welcomed. As a community, we emphasize involvement for our academy’s family members. Our goal is to construct an educational setting that is academic, positive, and enjoyable while also managing respect and gratitude. We look forward to any new faces and known faces alike, that may walk through our humble doors. We are always ready to serve and offer the best at Springview Academy Preparatory.
