"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." - Albert Einstein
Highpoint Academy believes in the uniqueness of each child. Although our curriculum is geared to average and above average students, our teachers place great emphasis on the needs and learning styles of each individual child so they can achieve their maximum potential. Our teachers understand each student's area of intelligence and continuously encourage their students to think creatively and to strive for their personal best.
Our students are provided with a supportive and safe environment where they will learn and discover through hands-on activities and explorations. Students participate in numerous projects, school and community events and field trips that enhance their learning process.
In addition to all basic subjects, such as Math (including Pre-Algebra & Algebra I), Language Arts, Science (including Earth, Life & Physical Science), Social Studies (including Fla. History, World Geography, World History & Civics), Health, Physical Education, Art (including Art History) and Music, our students are required to take Spanish and from Kindergarten thru 8th Grade.
For our Language Arts, we combine Phonics with a Whole Language approach. In Grades 1 thru 8, we have a "Language Arts Block" wherein English, Reading, Creative Writing, Vocabulary and Spelling are all incorporated. We teach children to love reading by using literature-based paperbacks instead of thick basals.We also enhance our Reading Program with the use of "Accelerated Reader". This wonderful software program allows the students to individually assess their reading progress on the computer. It encourages, enhances, stimulates and rewards the students on a daily basis.
