Four Innovative Approaches

In collaboration with our community, we have reimagined specific aspects of the student, family, and staff member experience through four innovative approaches. 
Teachers at Computer
Teacher and Staff Development
THRIVE will offer all teachers and staff more than three times the amount of paid professional development that is offered in most local public schools. This will ensure that teachers have the training needed to be highly effective in their roles. 
Science Lab
21st Century Calendar and Schedule
Our schedule will offer students a one-hour Bonus Block of instruction four days per
week, during which all students will be able to engage in additional hands-on enrichment through STEAM Labs.
Happy student
Expanded Definition of Student Success
We incorporate outcomes related to academic achievement, social and emotional learning, and experiential learning that will ensure our programming supports the development of the whole child.
Three children holding hands
Three Small Schools
THRIVE will operate as three small schools within one larger school community. This will create an experience that caters to the needs of students and families in a way that centers relationships, recognizes developmental needs, and allows for more effective and efficient communication with families.
