Our elementary students flourish in multi-grade classrooms, where every child receives one-on-one attention and benefits from working together with classmates in an encouraging and vibrant setting. Parents and community members actively engage in student learning and work in concert with teachers and staff members to promote the best interest and success of each student.
We believe that a solid education is not just about what we teach—though that is certainly important—but it is also about how we teach our students. That’s why we have selected the nationally recognized Core Knowledge Sequence as the foundation of our academic program.
The Benefits of the Core Knowledge Sequence
We offer special education services on site at Birch Grove Community School, provided by qualified special education staff. If you believe your child might qualify for these services, or if you would like to learn more about our program, please contact the school office.
Our current practice includes a scientifically based curriculum, small group instruction in the classroom, 90 minutes per day on reading instruction, 30-60 minutes per day devoted to independent reading and writing, staff meetings specifically dedicated to student assessment and achievement, staff development, and individual plans designed to increased academic performance in students that are not making adequate growth. Please read about Birch Grove’s current practices in this literacy plan.
