            Ms. Critchfield

    Fernan's advanced learning program services students in grades 3rd-5th. Ms. Critchfield works with kids both in the classroom as well as in small groups.  Students are assessed at the beginning of each school year and throughout the year to help us guide instruction and determine learning needs.


    Our goals for ALP education at Fernan are:

    • To provide each child with a differentiated, appropriate educational experience in order to help him/her achieve maximum potential
    • To aid each child in understanding and coping more successfully with his/her unique talents and in demonstrating a positive regard for his/her own talents and contributions of others
    • To assist each child in becoming self-disciplined and responsible for his/her class work and behavior
    • To make each year a positive learning experience for each child
