At Focus Learning Academies, we believe in a holistic approach to education. It is our mission to mold our students into active and productive members of society.
We continuously seek to create a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations for success through instruction that allows for individual differences and learning styles.
Our school promotes a safe, orderly, caring, and supportive environment. Each student’s self-esteem is fostered by positive relationships with students and staff. We strive to have our parents, teachers, and community members actively involved on our students’ learning.
FLANC adopted Wonders by McGraw Hill Education as our reading curriculum. Wonders is a comprehensive K-4 program built on Ohio ELA standards.
Powerful technology and data from this program can be used to target instruction for every child. This provides every instructional minute to count, as students move ahead efficiently, always focused on the skills needed, strategies and standards.
We utilize Zearn Math to integrate the personalized digital learning with the curriculum which plays a significant role in helping our students learn the precise math content they need to master. Zearn is a program and a curriculum that has transformed the math pedagogy in our school by combining daily small group instruction with personalized digital lessons.
If reading is the foundation of education then mathematics is the frame. We understand the importance of mathematics in everyday life, and understand that some students can be intimidate by mathematics; however, we positively push and encourage them to break past this and learn to love math. All math instruction is Common Core and grade level based.
English as a Second Language (ESL)
We strive to foster an environment where the children can learn a new language without feeling left out, left behind, or confused. Therefore, we have designed a program to boost the English language acquisition of our students.
Our staff is highly trained and qualified to teach children new to the country the English language and bridge the gap between their native language and English.
At Focus Learning Academies, we have employed the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Music or STEAM education model. We feel that all aspects of STEAM are integral to the intellectual, emotional, and mental growth of our students.
Arabic Language Instruction
We have full-time Arabic Language Instructors for grades Kindergarten through 8th grade.
During the elementary years, our staff focuses on instilling the Arabic alphabet and neat, precise penmanship. Throughout the middle school years, our teachers focus on word recognition and sentence structure. These values will help to create a more comprehensive understanding of the Arabic language.
Our Physical Education Curriculum is designed to develop in students the skills, knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors that promote a healthy level of physical fitness and lead to a commitment to consistent, lifelong participation in physical activity.
