Fernan's advanced learning program services students in grades 2-5th. During the day students who have demonstrated above proficient skills in reading and/or math come into Mrs. Keifer's room to deepen their understandings and to delve into more challenging topics. Students are regularly assessed to determine whether they will stay in the advanced class throughout the year.
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
