Programs

The Concept School’s curriculum is driven by every student’s unique academic and social potential.  Teachers understand that every student responds differently to instruction; therefore, the learning experience is aligned to student need and learning style.  The curriculum is customized throughout the school year according to student progress.  TCS teachers strive to create a culturally responsive classroom climate in order to promote strong academics, social skills, and character.  

Communication and continuity between home and school is key to a student’s success at TCS.  Open, honest relationships between all members of the student’s community promote the essential communication for progress. Because we offer several modes of communication, a student’s academic and social progress does not become a surprise before quarterly grade reporting. 

TCS teachers collaborate on a consistent basis to share instructional strategies in order to educate all students.  Professional development is an ongoing requirement in order for teachers to stay current on research-based and evidence-based practices.  Monitoring student progress is accomplished weekly during teacher meetings.

The caring nature of the staff, the multi-sensory learning experiences, and the curriculum adapted to his learning style helped Brendan develop a love and talent for writing.
