The Shaw Campus offers a nurturing and stimulating academic environment that meets the individual needs of all of our learners.
We provide opportunities for enrichment, cross-curricular experiential learning opportunities, and individualized instruction. Through our Global Ambassadors program, we are developing our students as global learners, problem solvers, and innovators. Driven by our core values, Character, Excellence and Service, students engage in domestic and international service learning projects throughout the year.
Our teachers serve as facilitators of deep personal learning, by focusing on students’ interests and by differentiating instruction to meet students’ academic needs. Within every class, the use of technology, co-teaching and differentiation are key instructional strategies at our campus.
We instill a growth mindset in our students so they can assess themselves and work towards continuous improvement, socially, emotionally, and physically. Spanish, physical education, visual and graphic arts are infused into the instructional day to develop the whole child. The Shaw Campus has extensive partnerships with Art and Humanities for Every Student, JumpBunch and Soccer Shots. Students also have the opportunity to participate in academic competitions, student government, yearbook club, art animation, chorus, dance and STEP. Additionally, we provide targeted academic support to English Language Learners through our “ESL After the Bell” program.
We believe that all stakeholders play pivotal roles within the Shaw learning community. As an extension of the home-school connection, teachers engage in home visits, data-driven parent meetings, and provide parents with the tools to reinforce daily instruction at home.
Grades: PreK4 to 8
