HigherSchool Instructional Services is an educational company, founded in 2002, that provides tutoring, supplemental instruction and expanded learning to Title I students from pre kindergarten through high school; professional development to teachers, administrators and principals; student support to students in need of counseling; and academic guidance to parents of school age children.
HigherSchool has a successful and proven track record of working collaboratively with state departments of education, school districts, principals, building level staff, and teachers on effective instructional and youth development issues. We understand that working collaboratively is essential to effectively address the multiple issues affecting the whole child.
Since 2005, we have provided supplemental instruction to thousands of Title I students in New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Maryland and the District of Columbia. We also provide instructional programs to Title I students attending nonpublic schools in Literacy, Math and English as a Second Language for students in pre kindergarten through high school.
Our philosophical and empirical understanding of best practices in teaching and learning is evidenced by our practical application of how children learn and how they learn most effectively. Adaptive assessments are critical elements of our program. We understand that in order to be effective we must first assess then instruct, then assess again - which has been determined to be a more effective method of instruction.
We employ inquiry-based learning to improve thinking skills and youth development. We provide rigorous standards-based instruction aligned to the Common Core using a proven, gradual-release approach that builds and develops student confidence.
