Instructional Strategies

We customize our program to fit the needs of your students, providing students with a strong foundation and the tools to help them perform on grade level.

Our instructional strategy is designed around how children learn and how they learn most effectively. Employing the Backwards Design Model, we test then instruct based on the results, which research proves is a more effective method of instruction.

  • HigherSchool's engaging instructional program motivates students to reach higher and advance further.
  • We introduce inquiry-based learning techniques to improve thinking skills.
  • We provide rigorous instruction incorporating a Research-based Curriculum aligned to the Common Core Learning Standards using a proven, gradual release approach that builds student confidence. This research-based strategy includes:
    • Modeled instruction
    • Guided instruction
    • Guided practice
    • Independent practice

We provide highly scaffolded, visually appealing lessons designed specifically to support struggling students.
