We do not participate in New York State standardized testing, but we
regularly observe and assess every child’s academic, social and emotional progress.
Our whole child, multi-sensory approach to the academic curriculum utilizes the creative arts as a vehicle for inspiring personal and meaningful connections to reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, wellness, and physical education. We always meet and often surpass New York State and Common Core standards. Integrated into the curriculum are the skills of social emotional intelligence, mindfulness practices, physical activities that enhance learning, and healthy nutrition. Grounded in the Psychology of Possibilities, every interaction is meant to show children that they are capable of far more than they realize. Spark! Curriculum travels beyond the “norm” and creates the exceptional.
