by Beverly Stewart, M.Ed.
The benefits of a low student to teacher ratio are well-documented. And, for some students in Delaware, there is an even better solution – a 1-on-1 classroom! Your child can have crucial 1-on-1 teacher interaction every day at Delaware’s only Department of Education-approved 1-on-1 Private School.
So, how does it work? The experienced and degreed instructors at Back to Basics K-12 Private School work as a team to customize and tailor an integrated curriculum to meet the unique needs and abilities of your child. The teaching staff is dedicated to the growth and development of your child academically, socially, mentally and emotionally. And, the result is improved academic skills, increased self-esteem, and unparalleled subject mastery.
What kind of curriculum is available? Back to Basics K-12 Private School offers the four core curriculum areas of English/language arts, math, social studies and science, as well as electives for all grades which include foreign languages (20 offered), business courses, computer literacy, sociology, study skills, art, music, drama, photography, , and over 50 other subjects.
- students who are not achieving success in other academic environments,
- students whose learning style does not fit within the traditional classroom setting,
- students who have had social difficulties or social anxiety,
- students who are currently pursuing a career in the arts or sports and need a more flexible schedule,
- students who have a temporary or chronic medical condition, and
- students who are academically gifted and are not challenged in their current classroom.
Each grade level is building block to success in the next. For example, the goal of the Back to Basics Lower School (K-6) is to provide students with a firm foundation which will support a lifetime of learning. The 1-on-1 connection between teacher and student inspires active engagement, as well as unsurpassed individual accomplishment. Experienced instructors will stimulate your child to develop a passion for learning and a belief in his abilities.
