VIBRANT LEARNING COMMUNITY
Eisenhower can be identified as a vibrant learning community where all students are provided opportunities to learn with a focus on achievement in the core subject areas. This core focus is supported by an array of opportunities both inside and outside the classroom, where students continue to develop skills and grow as individuals. The faculty and staff are an integral part of the school community and an outstanding student resource, while parent involvement, interest and support completes the circle of dedicated interest in student success.
The curriculum is focused through the core area subjects with an emphasis on electives based upon the district wide pyramid of learning. This pyramid emphasizes the traditional basic skills of reading, writing, and computational fluency through the core subject areas of English, mathematics, science and social studies. The next level of emphasis through the curriculum is art, foreign language and music that are considered high quality elective offerings in our district direction document. Beyond these two levels other mandated requirements are prioritized above the various electives and co-curricular offerings.
ADDITIONAL CURRICULUM OPPORTUNITIES
The curriculum outside the core academics consists of opportunities in art, music, foreign languages, computer sciences, business education and technology education. Eisenhower provides advanced opportunities including courses and co-curricular activities for students who have the ability to challenge themselves further such as advanced placement and honors classes. In addition, there are multiple support programs for students who are not meeting proficiency and/or identified goals for success. These programs include: summer school, extended learning opportunities within the school year, writing lab, mathematics lab, National Honor Society tutoring, student services support, special education services, Section 504 accommodations, and others in addition to the regular support of instructors and communication and involvement of parents. We are very proud of our successes and continue to grow in these areas.
Instructors in the school continue to look for methods to best serve student needs. Curriculums are reviewed and developed with specific focus to improve learning opportunities for students. The school and district seek to employ and retain people who have a passion for students and education, individuals who seek to grow throughout their educational career and in turn provide the impetus and opportunity for students to learn through a curriculum differentiated in order to meet the needs of all students.
