What we accomplish in each classroom
We build confidence, social skills, emotional strength, and intelligence in each student. Our teachers endeavor to identify and enhance each student’s abilities, and because of our small class sizes, we are able to create a unique strength-based learning plan for each individual. Accommodations are built into lesson plans and promoting self-advocacy is a mainstay. We want students to develop the confidence to determine what they need and how to reach it. We teach the whole student, incorporating social-emotional skills daily, and give each student true attention and personal time. Walk into any classroom at Humanex and you will see comfy chairs, positive distractions, and a teacher building a relationship with each student.
Middle School: The Emotional-Social Growth Years
So much brain development occurs during these pivotal years, and, we at Humanex, recognize that! We keep the class size small; the average size class ratio is 5 students: 1 teacher. Grades are weighted to reflect our prioritization of social-emotional growth. During these Emotional-Social Growth Years, we maintain the following academic to social-emotional weighted grading scale.
6th-7th grades: 50% academic + 50% life and career skills
8th grade: 60% academic + 40% life and career skills
High School: College & Career Prep Years
We set the stage and prepare young minds for the next step beyond high school, regardless of their chosen path. We strive to keep our classroom size small; the average class size is 8 students: 1 teacher. What makes our high school classrooms uniquely different than a traditional high school setting is that you will find learning environments that vary widely and include self-directed projects, experiential learning, and mentorship programs with local businesses. Our Transition Program is individualized to each student, with a specific emphasis on college and career preparation. During the College & Career Prep Years, we maintain the following academic to social-emotional weighted grading scale.
