Under Mr. Salazar’s leadership, the school was the number one independent charter school in the State of New York in its performance on state assessments in English Language Arts and Math.
One of the core tenets of the Classical Model to education is a focus on phonics and literacy.
We are a balanced literacy school which 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.
