At Afya, we find a balance between teaching to the standards and teaching to the student. We pay close attention and know our students as individual learners. Teachers are experts in their content areas and instruction engages our early adolescent students while preparing them for high school success. In mathematics, our curriculum ensures that students both understand concepts and can apply skills flexibly and accurately. Algebra I is offered in eighth grade. In our humanities courses, students read broadly and analytically to develop reading, writing, and historical thinking skills. Next Generation Science Standards allow us to implement our science lessons in engaging ways emphasizing modeling and guided practice.

Overarching Goals for 2017-18 School Year

  • Students on grade level in reading and math
  • All students making at least one year of growth in reading and math

For a detailed look at the objectives, strategies, activities, action steps, and metrics we use to monitor progress towards our goals, see this document (coming soon).
