Our philosophy

Why Accelerating Success?

We chose the name Accelerating Success because we believe that this is what American education needs to do in order to keep up with the rest of the world.  We also found synergy with the phrase because the method in which we believe this can be achieved is by focusing our instruction on what NGSS calls the four C's of 21st century learners.  The four qualities that we believe should be focused on are Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, and Communication.  We are guided by these principles as we create each and every professional learning experience or educational resource.

Kendall Condit - Assistant Principal

These gentlemen exceeded expectations every campus visit! They meet teachers at each teacher's level of mastery then scaffolded the learning to build capacity and competence.  Mr. Washington and Mr. Williams met individually and in small groups with science teachers to assist in curriculum implementation, data dis-aggregation, technology integration, and strategies to bolster student achievement. We were disheartened when they were no longer a direct resource for our campus.  

Diane Rainone- Teacher- Montessori

Both were very professional, the subject matter was applicable to my students' learning, the class was fun and interactive, and I got lots of ideas that I have used in my classroom since then. They both instill an enthusiasm that carries over to their students. 

Rose Elliot- Teacher- Grade 5

 These gentlemen were very well prepared and knowledgeable about the content that was being delivered.  They were always professional and very helpful to everyone in the training.  If I needed further assistance, they would come to my school and help me,  and even instruct my students in specific areas of the content of science.
