Our SEEALL Program
The SEEALL Academy engages its students as active participants in the learning process. A unique partnership is formed with the teacher, the student, and the parent. This in turn instills and nurtures leadership among its students, preparing them for a successful future.
Our Superintendent’s program for students in our Intermediate School provides opportunities for gifted learners to achieve through content and enrichment, with a strong emphasis on academics and artistic excellence.
Enriched instruction in both programs is planned around a specific topic, theme or problem. Teachers integrate content and process in the curricula and provide opportunities for both independent and cooperative learning. Teachers plan for varied experiences in the areas of creativity, decision-making and analytical thinking. Teaching strategies include individual projects, learning centers, multicultural approaches, field trips and contact with resource people. The foreign languages offered to our middle schools students are Chinese, Italian, French, and Spanish.
