Educational Approach

Teachers use a variety of instructional strategies and approaches to reach their students' varied interests and abilities. Curriculum and instruction at ORLS follow a balanced approach. Teaching strategies like direct instruction, cooperative learning, project-based learning, summarizing, note-taking, and nonlinguistic representations are utilized. A variety of tools accompany instruction from textbooks to Chromebooks, manipulatives, songs, movement, and learning applications.


Multi- Age Classrooms

Multi-age classrooms provide a rich classroom experience. Older students develop leadership and mentoring skills while collaborating with younger students. Relationships are fostered over two years with the classroom teacher. Varied groupings can be utilized across grade levels. Multi-age classrooms mirror student interactions in the real world. The curriculum design supports multi-age learning environments. Classrooms adopt a family-feel as students alternate being the oldest students in the room, to the youngest the next year.
