Our Vision and Mission

When students and teachers are engaged in work that is challenging, adventurous and meaningful, learning and achievement flourish. Our mission is to create classrooms where teachers can fulfill their highest aspirations, and students achieve more than they think possible, becoming active contributors to building a better world.

 

Three Dimensions of Student Achievement

When students enter adult life, they will be celebrated not for their performance on basic skills tests, but rather for the quality of their work and their character. That’s why EL Education builds students’ capacity for three dimensions of high achievement:

Mastery of Knowledge and Skills

Demonstrate proficiency and deeper understanding: show mastery in a body of knowledge and skills within each discipline

Apply their learning: transfer knowledge and skills to novel, meaningful tasks

Think critically: analyze, evaluate, and synthesize complex ideas and consider multiple perspectives

Communicate clearly: write, speak, and present ideas effectively in a variety of media within and across disciplines

Character

Work to become effective learners: develop the mindsets and skills for success in college, career, and life (e.g., initiative, responsibility, perseverance, collaboration)

Work to become ethical people: treat others well and stand up for what is right (e.g., empathy, integrity, respect, compassion)

Contribute to a better world: put their learning to use to improve communities (e.g., citizenship, service)

High-Quality Student Work

Create complex work: demonstrate higher-order thinking, multiple perspectives and transfer of understanding

Demonstrate craftsmanship: create work that is accurate and beautiful in conception and execution

Create authentic work: demonstrate original thinking and voice, connect to real-world issues and formats, and when possible, create work that is meaningful to the community beyond the school

Amplify
Social Studies
Civics for All

enVision® is the Grades K-12 math series that helps  deliver a strong culturally responsive
curriculum. It’s designed to empower students while building their conceptual understanding of
math. Problem-based learning and visual learning combine to promote student voice and choice,
interdependence, and self-confidence. All of which goes a long way to helping students “envision”
themselves—and others—as creative problem solvers with valuable contributions.

Amplify Science was developed with the goal of creating high quality instructional
materials that will help create the next generation of scientific innovators as well
as citizens who are skeptical, curious, evidence-based thinkers capable of
making decisions that improve their and their communities’ lives. An essential
element of this goal is to support ALL learners through a focus on equitable
teaching and learning, in ways such as supporting students in developing
identities as builders and active users of science knowledge, promoting cultural
and linguistic inclusion, and providing access to deep learning.
