Hands on Learning
Children learn best through rhythm, building, exploring, and doing. Burrell Academy takes a unique approach to learning. We learn through hands-on projects, dance, song, gardening, small group instruction and individualized plans. The curriculum is taught in a way that children understand and our individualized learning plans ensure that no child is ever left behind.
The 2nd part of our curriculum is parent education. We want parents to learn what resources are available, how to choose the best grade school, and their rights in public education. Parents are also asked to volunteer and are taught the curriculum their child is working on so that they can reinforce it at home. Burrell Academy is about educating the child as a whole, which includes parents and guardians.
