Personalized Learning Platform
Our approach to teaching puts whole-child development at the forefront of the educational experience. It's also rooted in the science of how children learn best and designed to drive student engagement, strong student-teacher relationships, and meaningful learning. This program also equips our teachers with comprehensive tools and resources to support every student to reach their potential-both in the classroom and beyond.

Inside the classroom
A hands-on curriculum-with a focus on projects based on real-world scenarios, group work, and mentoring-helps  students put what they're learning into action.

Student engagement
* Teachers help foster an environment where students feel invested in their learning.
* Teachers give students a deeper understanding of what they're learning and why they're learning-and in the way each student learns best.
* Students feel empowered to take ownership of their own learning progress, motivating them to stay engaged.

Student-teacher relationships
* Teachers cultivate deeper connections with students using tools and strategies that give them a better understanding of their students as learners and as people.
* Teachers tailor their teaching to every student's specific needs through thoughtful mentoring sessions and group workshops.
* More meaningful and productive interactions take place, creating a dynamic learning environment.

Meaningful learning
* Instead of simply memorizing information, students focus on developing a strong grasp of class material and effective application of key skills, such as critical analysis and communication.
* Students learn from a curriculum that helps them demonstrate a strong grasp of concepts and key skills before progressing-students move forward once they have shown they understand what they've learned.
* Students see how they're learning applies to their personal interests, future success, and life outside of school.

There are three components that guide this approach to teaching:

Teachers play an additional role as mentors to their students, providing support through weekly 1:1 meetings. Mentors help students identify how to improve progress in their classes and overcome challenges. Mentors also help students develop effective learning strategies, behaviors, and a mindset they can apply in the classroom and to personal goals.

Teachers show students how their learning is relevant to life outside of school through projects based on real-world scenarios. Students demonstrate the application of real-world skills, such as working effectively with a team and contributing to their community through these hands-on, peer-to-peer projects.

Teachers help students develop habits associated with lifelong learning, such as the ability to set and follow through on short- and long-term goals, self-awareness, and stress management. Students, parents, and teachers also have access to an online learning platform that provides them with a detailed view of student progress.
Homework Help at the Fairview Park Library
The Fairview Park Library is one of several branches in the Cuyahoga County Public Library system that will be once again offering free, after-school homework help for students in grades K-8. There will be an open house on Wednesday, September 18 from 3:30 - 5:30 PM for families to meet staff and see the space.
