Spotlight

Whole-child meets growth mindset.

All learners come to us with skills, asset and previous knowledge; and each of our students is capable of high achievement.

In the same regard, every child has a history- which, for some, includes interrupted formal education, L1 literacy gaps, culture shock, or trauma.

Refugee Classroom considers a range of factors in order to effectively target EL student growth from a whole-child lens. Using relevant data and site-based specifics to inform action, RC works with school leaders to create a strategic plan for student growth that incorporates research-based best practices that benefit ELLs- and all learners. We are confident that students will aim for the bar, wherever we place it; and so, we place it high.

Get started in growing staff efficacy now.
