Dear Students, Parents, Guardians and Community Members,
Welcome to Michael Strembitsky School!
At Michael Strembitsky School, our priority is student growth and success. We believe that educating our students is a collective responsibility. Through a collaborative approach in working together with you as partners, we will maximize the potential of all students. We are committed to providing a positive learning environment that will foster and support high academic and behavioral expectations, capitalizing on the value of relationships as we delve deeper into our work.
We focus on creating an inviting and inclusive school community where diversity is celebrated and valued, where relationships are nurtured. Emphasis is placed on creating an environment where students feel capable, connected and contributing members in our school community and society in meaningful and fulfilling ways.
In an effort to ensure all students are successful, faculty will use a differentiated approach to teaching. This approach includes thoughtful planning, strategic assessment of learning outcomes, and targeted, flexible instruction. Classroom teaching will be a blend of whole class, group, partner, and individual instruction. Students will be provided with a multiple opportunities to make sense of ideas and information, practice new skills, and to demonstrate what they have learned.
As a faculty, we provide challenging and engaging curricular learning within and across subject disciplines. Students are engaged in learning and service projects that rely upon and strengthen human spirit and imagination. As a school, we design and embrace projects that allow students to engage in in-depth study of real-world problems that they care about and are interested in. Such opportunities to harness students' passion to explore problems or projects that affect their lives and the lives of their friends and family, enable our students to become experts across subjects, use 21st century skills, and to collaborate with others at school and beyond to devise innovative solutions. Project learning allows students to cultivate meaningful and memorable knowledge within authentic contexts for learning.
At Michael Strembitsky School, we have access to new technologies that will serve as powerful tools for students to access, search, analyze, store, manage, create and communicate information and knowledge. These technologies support our focus on learning, thinking, communicating, collaborating, and working in much more powerful, personalized, integrated, connected and efficient ways.
We believe that success is best achieved in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. This will allow for a climate that supports relationship building and authentic partnerships among students, faculty, parents and community members. We believe that these relationships are integral to supporting students' academic learning, fostering students' citizenship skills, and ensuring student responsibility.
Please check this web site regularly for updates on our work.
We are looking forward to a great year with our students, families and all partners in education!
