Imagine Great Western Academy relies on the nationally developed Common Core State Standards. We use the following approaches/programs to aid instruction:
Teachers use a combination of a Balanced Literacy approach and a Guided Reading Approach to teach English Language Arts. We offer school wide Title-1 services and Reading Recovery for first grade students.
In Mathematics, we have adopted enVisionsMATH for K-5 and Connected Math for 6-8th. These programs have been carefully researched and offer a wide variety of options, including a wide variety of Technology components.
