All children learn differently. That is why personalized education is essential to maximize the learning of each child. It is why at St. Benilde School, all children are supported by many layers of support.
The first layer of student support is our personalized approach to education. Using data driven from benchmark assessments, classroom performance, and more, teachers design instruction using whole group, small group, and independent learning configurations.
All children struggle from time to time. Sometimes that struggle lasts long enough that learning gaps start to emerge and a second layer of support is needed. Our Literacy Lab, Catapult tutors, and tutoring program all provide children with this layer of support.
The third layer of support includes all of the supports in Layer Two, but at a more intensive level. Children may need to spend five days in the literacy lab, or receive more focused tutoring support for them to succeed.
Exceptional Learning Lab
This final layer is for children who need an alternative curriculum in math or reading in order for them to be successful. Children who qualify for the Exceptional Learning Lab will receive highly focused instruction that is on their level and in the unique style that they learn best.
