Our Core Values
Our school and program are driven by our CORE Values of Community, Optimism, Respect, and Excellence. These values are grounded in research, the study of successful school models, and belief in the human spirit. Our school’s focus on values will fill the needs of our community. This will be done through our daily language, the books we read, and how adults model our CORE Values.
Our values education is embedded into our curriculum, language, and daily routines to ensure scholars learn and exhibit high levels of values in all areas of school.
We are a balanced literacy school that focuses on phonics, read-aloud, guided reading, shared text, and reading/writing workshop to develop a scholar's reading ability. This approach is used by the top performing schools in the country.
Our mathematical approach is comprehensive. We will develop a strong foundation in math facts while also building a conceptual understanding of mathematical principles. Our K-8 program is designed and implemented to ensure scholars are successful in STAAR assessments and in life.
At Houston Classical, we believe that science and technology is an essential pillar of a 21st-century scholar. We also believe in experiment-based science, where scholars each week will participate in experiments related to the unit of study.
