What Makes Our School Special?
Four basic elements make Columbus Charter School a wonderful place for children to learn and grow and for teachers to teach:
- Protected Learning Environments — We provide structured orderly classrooms in which instructional time is maximized, and disruptions are kept to a spare minimum.
- Direct Instruction — This research-based instructional approach emphasizes the use of intensive, small group work, using carefully designed lessons leading to mastery.
- Highest Quality Teaching Staff— The School selects those individuals with a passion for teaching and with the skills necessary to guide their students to academic success and moral growth.
- High Expectations— We ask the children to rise to a high level of achievement. We expect much hard work, focus, and sustained effort. With the proper encouragement and guidance, all of our students can reach their potential.
