We’ve selected research-based, rigorous, culturally relevant curricula that we know will provide our students with a strong foundation to be lifelong learners and leaders. We are data-driven in our approach to instruction, providing students with all the skills they need to thrive on grade-level and beyond.
FOCUS ON LITERACY
Our K-8 literacy curriculum seeks to create strong readers and writers. Our literacy curriculum brings rich, knowledge-building content into our classrooms. It celebrates the joy of reading and writing, and it allows teachers to teach more meaningful English through authentic texts and art.
FOCUS ON MATH
Our K-8 math curricula seek to create brilliant mathematicians. We believe that it is not enough for students to know the process for solving a problem; we believe they need to understand why that process works. Our students strategize and solve problems, not just get answers.
Our schools seek to be places where all students feel welcome, celebrated, and safe, both physically and emotionally. Our schools seek to affirm students’ identity and cultural backgrounds as assets. We celebrate values like hard work, ebullience, optimism, and integrity.
We know that teachers are the key to student success. We also know that great teachers are made, not born. That’s why we support them with regular classroom observations and feedback. That’s why we give them all the resources they need and celebrate them as the assets that they are.
We know that the best schools in the country provide students, families, and staff with highly qualified, supportive instructional and operational leaders. That’s why Adelante Schools is staffed with some of the very best school leaders working in Indianapolis today.
