What is a Charter School?
Charter schools are public schools that operate under a performance contract, or a charter, which frees them from many regulations for traditional schools while holding them accountable for academic and financial results. The contract between the school governing board and the sponsor details the school’s mission, program, goals, students served, methods of assessment and ways to measure success.
Our Academic Foundation
The Ron Clark's Essential 55 is a whole-school transformation model . The Essential 55 produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents.
Our curriculum will leverage the state standards set forth by the State of Florida. These standards will be utilized in thematic and project-based units.
The Teacher’s Academy will use “standards” set by the government for different domains of teaching. However the standards don’t provide the “how” for teachers to meet them and “what” meeting the standards looks like in practice. Teachers Academy provides the “how” to meet those expectations for teachers and the “what to look for” for administrators. Teachers Academy will provide administrators training and support for using effective, distributed monitoring of specific activities, artifacts and actions, so that teachers will successfully meet (and exceed) the standards set by the evaluation models.

An easy way to remember this definition is: Repetitive, Intentional, and an imbalance of Power."
Students and/or staff are encouraged to write a statement on the day that the incident occurs and turn it into the bullying coordinator, Mr. Grayek (firstname.lastname@example.org for middle/high school or Mrs. Murphy (email@example.com) for elementary.
