Individualized Preschool Learning Curriculum
At Skyline Schools, student success is our mission
Skyline Preschools incorporate a college standards-aligned individualized preschool learning curriculum for Academics, Arts, and Athletics, supported by Arizona and National Common Core standards. Established in 2000, Skyline’s network of schools has a proven track record of successful education outcomes in Arizona.
Skyline’s individualized preschool learning curriculum is continually updated and revised as the Arizona Department of Education develops new standards and assessments. All core curriculum is aligned to the state standards by Curriculum teams. While Skyline’s curriculum promotes core instructional materials, there is flexibility for adjustments based on student populations and needs for individual schools.
Universal Design for Learning
Skyline Education promotes Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDL is a set of principles for individualized preschool learning curricula that give each student customized opportunities to learn. UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone–not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs.
All parents encouraged to attend upcoming PTA meetings and participate in the development and education of their children. We cannot do it alone and need parent participation to ensure students reaching maximum potential. Please contact your child’s school immediately and attend the next PTO meeting.
These programs are designed to help students who are struggling academically and/or socially to achieve success in school by building self-esteem, encouraging cooperation and team concepts, improving study habits, connecting with adult mentors, and providing academic assistance.
Before/After School Care
Most Skyline Education campuses sponsor before-and-after-school programs and offer high-quality, low-cost childcare to students. Before and after school programs, early release care, emergency childcare, and holiday and vacation camps are offered.
If you would like information about activities, clubs, classes, and events sponsored by the community, please visit the school front office. We value the classroom as an instructional setting that is free of advertising; therefore, fliers and information about non-school sponsored.
More information about Universal Design for Learning is available at CAST's website.
Multi-Tiered System of Supports
Skyline Education offers rigor and relevance that supports Differentiated Instruction by increasing both knowledge and experience by providing a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) for students. MTSS is a term used to describe an evidence-based model of schooling that uses data-based problem-solving to integrate academic and behavioral instruction and intervention. The integrated instruction and intervention is delivered to students in varying intensities (multiple tiers) based on student need. “Need-driven” decision-making seeks to ensure that district resources reach the appropriate students at the appropriate levels to accelerate the performance of ALL students to achieve and/or exceed proficiency. Advanced learning students also have options for acceleration, enrichment, or both. For example, Honors and AP courses are provided at individual schools.
Digital Learning Models
Skyline’s digital blended learning models support students to learn at school and at home. Best practices are shared across Skyline’s network of schools, schools outside our network, the Arizona State Charter Association, National Central Association Commission on Accreditation, and the US Department of Education.
College and Career Readiness Standards
The Skyline network of schools has adopted College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) that are aligned with both Arizona state and national standards. This enables our mission of offering an individualized preschool learning curriculum designed to stimulate students’ natural curiosity about a variety of subjects, in addition to life-long learning.
Skyline’s academic curriculum and school culture promote:
- A results-focused education with a clear end in mind that begins in Kindergarten and builds to mastery of the knowledge and skills that colleges and employers value
- Clear and consistent goals with an emphasis on real-world application of knowledge and skills
- Relevant content that increases the ability to effectively use critical thinking and problem-solving skills to communicate, collaborate, and adapt to new situations in either college or in the workplace
- A sound, rigorous, evidence-based preparation for success in college and/or career
Skyline utilizes a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) to promote our culture of College and Career Readiness. Our evidence-based practices are designed to support students’ academic and personal needs with varying levels of intervention to empower each student to achieve high standards.
