  • Ensure challenging TK-12 curriculum and instruction in all subject areas including:

  • Promote learning that encourages students to build non-cognitive skills like grit, resilience, perseverance and self-control      

  • Provide innovative programs that deliver personalized learning in non-traditional classroom settings https://www.facebook.com/ArcadiaInnovation/
