The design of our curriculum
The Anchor Focus of each year...
...supports our vision for Synergy students to become
Each year at Synergy:
Year 1: My Personal Self, Communication (thoughtful)
Year 2: My Published Self, My Path in the World, Expand my Horizons (well-rounded)
Year 3: My Interactive Self, My Passions, My Contribution to the World (contributing member of society)
The teacher makes all the difference...
...to any learning environment so we take choosing and supporting our teachers very seriously. Middle school can be an uncertain and sensitive time of life for students. So much is changing, physically, emotionally, socially, and academically, that these students require the most supportive living and learning environment possible. They need to be surrounded by people they can trust and people they connect with...especially at school.
Teacher-Mentors travel together with students to the on location sites and participate alongside students in their essential youth program experiences. Additionally, Teacher-Mentors fully provide the academic instruction in the classroom at the Art Garage. Teacher-Mentors provides the students with expertise in content areas, multi-disciplinary curriculum design skills, and the heart and training to mentor middle school students during these uncertain and pivotal years. Teacher-Mentors beautifully weave together the five days of programming into one amazing middle school experience.
