We think outside the box and so do our students
We believe that each child is unique, that they all learn differently, and that their uniqueness will be reflected in their thinking. We use a differentiated approach to instruction to achieve that end, always calibrated to a level of difficulty where the child feels both challenged and successful.
To foster independence, we provide the necessary opportunities to make choices and decisions. We place a strong emphasis on ethical behavior and appreciation for diversity, creating a warm, heterogeneous community that fosters open-minded thinking and tolerance. The fact that 10 percent of our children are deaf or hard of hearing has a profound and positive impact on all Echo Horizon School students when it comes to acceptance and appreciation of differences in others.
Finally, we believe in the importance of giving all children an opportunity to be truly outstanding, whether that's in the classroom, in the arts or on the playground. The result is an environment where the students respect and admire one another for individual strengths.
