What we accomplish in each classroom
Our environment allows students to be themselves and to truly thrive within a school environment. We build confidence, social skills, emotional strength, and intelligence in each student by focusing on building positive and trusting relationships between students and adults within our building. This allows for corrective redirection and in-the-moment social coaching.
Our teachers meet students where they are academically and appropriately challenge each student at an individual level. We 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.
Our students develop the confidence to determine what they need and how to reach it. We teach the whole student by incorporating social-emotional skills daily and to give each student true attention and personal time. Students engage in accessible and creative content that allows them to build successes and skills for the future.
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.
9-12th grades: 80% academic + 20% life and career skills
