Academics

"We believe that student success is measured by the ability to think critically, write clearly, and apply learning to real world situations."

 

 

Two Way Bilingual Immersion Academy

TWBI is a bilingual program offered to both Spanish-speaking and English-speaking students in which the students learn how to read, write, and speak in both English and Spanish.

  • Our students become fluent and literate in two of the world’s most widely spoken languages (English & Spanish)
  • Students are given both academic and social skills needed to become leaders in a multilingual world
  • Students learn to appreciate their community by fostering cultural exchange and celebrating diversity
  • The study of two languages develops high levels of confidence and self-esteem
  • Learning comes alive when students explore the beauty of both languages through literature and song
 

Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA)

MESA activities are offered in our proficient and advanced TAS classes and MESA Club, which is held after school, is open to all students.    

 

Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)

The GATE Program is aimed at identifying and serving children who demonstrate advanced skills in language arts and mathematics and who need differentiated instruction in order to improve their chances for maximizing potential.  Differentiated instruction systematically incorporates thinking at deep and complex levels and helps students to develop a broad knowledge base.  It also encourages the development of research skills and real-world products as learning outcomes.

ALL ProgramAcademic Lifelong Learning Program (A.L.L.)

The A.L.L. Program is a collaboration between the Hawthorne School District and the Richstone Family Center. It is designed to help students increase their academic achievement, provide a safe and supportive place after school, as well as have fun with friends and caring adults while developing social relationships and engaging in enriching activities.

 

STAR Exam Preparation

Students are taught a standard based curriculum which is aligned with state testing requirements. Assessments are given throughout the school year to prepare our students to achieve proficiency on the STAR exam.

 

Preliminary SAT (PSAT)

The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a program cosponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). It's a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT®. It also gives you a chance to enter NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools.

The PSAT/NMSQT measures critical reading, Math problem-solving, and writing skills developed over many years, both in and out of school.
