Parents as Partners

Each day, every class has a morning meeting where we learn about each other and have fun preparing for the day ahead.

This also helps us to build strong relationships among friends and between each teacher and student.

Instruction is tailored to meet the individual needs of the students. Children work and are instructed at their own level.

Readers and Writers workshops are used as the basis of the literacy curriculum.

At recess, we promote physical activity as we believe it optimizes learning and provides creative social and emotional growth.

We offer healthy meal choices for breakfast, lunch and snack.

On Fridays, our whole school gathers to celebrate our school spirit and values of curiosity, generosity, and growth.

Every classroom has a yearly science theme that inspires their choice of class mascot.

Every week, we explore the pond at Fairmount Park as part of our environmental education focus. The pond is our outdoor classroom.

We work with the Academy of Natural Sciences to build a comprehensive and theme based science program.

Many of the students stay after school for extended learning and fun.

Programs include art, music, science, and sports.

At Inquiry Charter School, the school day ends as our families pick up their students for the day.

We consider families our partners, inviting them in for celebrations and events throughout the year.
