Educational Program Goals
 
  • Students will be encouraged to be self-motivated and life-long learners, primarily through self-directed opportunities pursued by the student and facilitated by Vantage Point Charter staff, with the support of parents.  This sense of ownership naturally elicits enthusiasm, interest and involvement. 
  • Vantage Point Charter students will perform and achieve as well as or better than students in the district’s traditional school.
  • Knowledge and demonstration of integrated learning across major subject areas will be evaluated through assessment tools.
