Our scholars deserve the best

RIGOROUS READING

Wit and Wisdom is our K—8 English curriculum that brings the rich content everyone loves into your scholar’s classroom. Wit & Wisdom helps your scholar read grade-level, authentic texts while celebrating the joy of reading and writing. Learn more about Wit and Wisdom here.

RIGOROUS MATH

When our teachers teach with Zearn Math, scholars learn the same concepts twice: once with their teacher and peers in a small group and once independently in self-paced digital lessons. The result? Teachers can ensure every child gets multiple pathways into content, unlocking deep learning.

FOUNDATIONAL SKILLS

We know that fluent reading depends on decoding and language comprehension. We have selected Wilson because they are passionate about providing educators with the knowledge and skills they need to help students who benefit from a systematic, multi-sensory, structured language approach.

Our Approach

RIGOROUS ACADEMICS

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.

CARING CULTURE

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.

STRONG TEACHERS

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.

SUPPORTIVE LEADERS

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.
