At Jacob Hiatt Magnet School students will achieve their highest academic potential by actively engaging in learning across all areas of a standards-based curriculum. We use a variety of performance and standards based assessments to identify student specific instructional needs, to inform effectiveness of instruction, and to modify instruction to better meet student needs. Students will be empowered to problem solve, think critically, communicate effectively, and work collaboratively. Best Practices:
- Metacognitive Strategies
- Explicit vocabulary instruction
- Balanced literacy approach
- Hands-on, inquiry based learning
- Flexible groupings and cooperative learning
