To meet each child's specific needs, the Sandra F. Birdsong Center for Academic Excellence facilitates Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening (PALS™) in Pre-K4 through grade five at the beginning, middle and end of the year to assess reading levels and guide instructional practice. The Center also uses data to determine the need for reading intervention. Teachers in kindergarten through grade three are trained in the Institute for Multi-Sensory Education (IMSE) Orton-Gillingham program to provide literacy interventions in the classroom. The i-Ready Math diagnostic is also used in kindergarten through grade 5 to assess overall math performance and growth during the academic year. Diagnostic results set a personalized learning path for each student, ensuring they're working on instruction that matches their unique learning needs.
Our passionate educators are committed to your child's academic, social and character development. We look forward to partnering with you to inspire a lifelong love of learning!
