At Colegio Roosevelt, we believe:
- Students learn best when they can apply or connect their learning
- Learning happens for individuals in different ways and at different times
- Learning occurs best when students get clear, timely feedback as well as opportunities to apply that feedback
- Learning is enriched by multiple opportunities to practice in a supportive environment
- Emotional well-being influences educational performance, learning and development
- Learning includes active creation, integration and application, not just passive consumption
- Effective classroom management is based on setting and communicating high expectations, nurturing positive relationships and providing a high level of student support
- Learning happens best in an atmosphere of high expectations
Learning in the Early Childhood and Elementary School involves the development of conceptual understandings, knowledge, skills, attitudes, learning behaviors, and opportunities for action. A range of strategies including inquiry based practices are designed to help scaffold student learning experiences.
Academic, physical, and social-emotional learning targets are aligned with FDR's adopted standards which include the U.S. Common Core in Mathematics and English Language Arts, the Official Peruvian Program (OPP) in Spanish, the AERO standards in Social Studies, and the Next Generation Science Standards. We emphasize student self-reflection, assessment for learning, and goal setting to support all students as they become independent learners.
