The foundations of a rigorous, college-preparatory education begin being built when a student enters school. Children begin to acquire knowledge and skills, but also develop executive functioning and metacognition. As Kindergartners, our youngest students learn what it means to be a part of a community. As fifth graders, they become leaders and role models for their peers.
As our students enter sixth grade they delve deeper into challenging assumptions, questioning with insight, and being respectful of others viewpoints and opinions. As students learn to question every answer, the results can be ground-breaking discoveries in who they are, and who they can be, in the larger-world.
Excellence in Academics
MOT Charter holds high achievement expectations for all students. The school's goal is to prepare students to be creative, intuitive, and analytical thinkers. The curriculum is designed to prepare students to use critical thinking skills in solving problems--both individually and collaboratively. All K-8 Academy students receive exploratory instruction in Spanish, Art, Music, Physical Education, Computer Technology and Wellness. In addition to the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) testing, we measure students’ academic progress with a computerized adaptive test, NWEA Map test.
