Profile

At Polaris Charter School, our mission is to create a joyful and exciting learning community for intellectually curious elementary- aged children. Through engaging, inquiry-based curriculum, our students will develop the ability to communicate effectively, work collaboratively, think critically, and excel academically. Our program fosters creativity and the development of social and emotional skills, instilling a positive attitude about future studies and ensuring students are well prepared for the challenges of an ever-changing world.

Polaris Charter School achieves this with:

  • A rigorous, project-oriented, interdisciplinary curriculum that ensures state standards are met and exceeded.
  • Utilizing flexible groupings in multi-age classrooms.
  • Encouraging each student’s progress with personal learningplans, combining social and academic standards withindividualized goals.
  • Motivating students to learn at their own pace and reach theirfull potential with a move-on-when-ready approach that allows for accelerated learning and is based on subject mastery.

We Offer an Approach That’s:

Innovative:

Polaris’ approach starts with a low student-teacher ratio (15:1) in multi-age classrooms; allowing students to work

independently or in small groups on projects designed to ensure each child works to his/her own potential.

Individualized:

Each student has a personal learning plan that aligns individual goals with academic and social/emotional standards.

Community Based:

Polaris is a community of students, families and educators all working collaboratively to prepare our children for the challenges of an ever changing world.
