The Millennium Community School will utilize research-proven curricula to ensure outstanding academic performance routinely by all of its socially and economically diverse student population. The Millennium Community School will create uniquely American, world-class public schools that meet the needs of today's families and children and prepare them for the twenty-first century.
The Millennium Community School is distinct from other schools in its intense focus on teaching students at their maximum rate, bringing them to higher levels at an advanced pace. To achieve this goal, the school uses a scripted curriculum in all basic skill subjects, such as math, reading, spelling and language. The Millennium Community School is also distinct in its success in elevating student achievement beyond expected grade level.
The basic educational philosophy of our program states that every child can learn if taught appropriately. In other words, children who fail have been failed by the instruction to which they have been submitted. Equipped with a proven curriculum, school staff follow successful instructional practices, evaluate each child often each day and alter ineffective teaching practices to meet the needs of every child. The school emphasizes basic skills, development and mastery at every stage to make it probable that skills will be applicable and generalizable. more...
