Creemos = We Believe

What do we believe?
 

Bradley Creemos Academy is dedicated to the idea that humans have the power and ability to speak dreams into existence, and to engineer our future with the

Creativity and Imagination

that we all possess. We do so with the hope that we may be a source of

Joy and Inspiration

to all the world.

What do we offer?
 

Growth Mindset

Instead of labeling students with discouraging fixed grades such as “C for Average”, “F for Failure”, etc., we encourage students to see themselves as being guided by our teachers along a path of growth towards the next level of mastery, and Not Yet finished with their progress toward becoming an independent learner. With the growth mindset our students (and teachers) gain the power of believing that they can improve. Click here to see more about the growth mindset as explained by educational researcher Carol Dweck.

Bradley Creemos Academy worked with Suzi Ferris educational consultants to develop a new measurement system that takes into account the growth mindset and the progress promised by our process: the [LEAP] Report, which measures Learning, Engagement, Academics, and Portfolio. To find out more details concerning this new way of evaluating the progress of our students, please download the document from the following link:

Effective & Established Curricula

Our K-5th Grades follow the Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) curriculum for English Language Arts. CKLA provides carefully sequenced background knowledge in social studies, science, literature and the arts to build vocabulary and comprehension while simultaneously teaching foundational reading skills. At the heart of the Listening & Learning strand are authentic fiction and nonfiction texts that teachers read aloud. These texts are grouped in knowledge domains that create interactive opportunities to question, discuss and share ideas centered on text. The Skills strand teaches reading and writing in tandem. These lessons support reading and foundational skills through daily instruction in phonemic awareness, spelling patterns, decoding with engaging decodable texts, writing mechanics and writing structure and processes. The Skills Strand fully accords with the findings of the National Reading Panel and the Reading Foundational Skills section of the Common Core State Standards.

Our 6th-8th Grades follow the Engage NY curriculum for English Language Arts which aligns with the Common Core Learning Standards (”the Standards”) and is the culmination of an extended, broad-based effort to help ensure that all students are college and career ready in literacy. Teachers use their content area expertise to help students meet the particular challenges of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language in their respective fields. This curriculum lays out a vision of what it means to be a literate person in the 21st century with wide applicability inside and outside the classroom or workplace. Students who meet the Standards readily undertake the close, attentive reading that is at the heart of understanding and enjoying complex works of literature. They habitually perform the critical reading necessary to pick carefully through the staggering amount of information available today, both print and digitally. They actively seek the wide, deep, and thoughtful engagement with high-quality literary and informational texts that build knowledge, enlarge experience, and broaden world views. They reflexively demonstrate the cogent reasoning and use of evidence that is essential to both private deliberation and responsible citizenship in a democratic republic. In short, students who meet the Standards develop the skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening that are the foundation for any creative and purposeful expression in language.

Our K-8th Grades follow the Eureka Math curriculum (also known as EngageNY) carefully sequencing mathematical progressions into expertly crafted modules. Eureka Math connects math to the real world in ways that take the fear out of math and build student confidence, while helping students achieve true understanding lesson by lesson and year after year. 

 

 

Expeditionary Learning

As part of the curricula, we guide our students on local expeditions to places like the zoo, the capitol building, and local businesses for the purpose of intellectual and creative exploration, immersive learning, hands-on experience, discovery, and inspiration. Using the Expeditionary Learning (EL) curriculum in our middle school we strive to impart our students with the following skills and attributes:

Deeper understanding: show mastery in a body of knowledge and skills within each discipline

Applied learning: transfer knowledge and skills to meaningful tasks

Critical Thinking: analyze, evaluate, and synthesize complex ideas and multiple perspectives

Clear Communication: write, speak, and present ideas effectively in a variety of media within and across disciplines

Effective Learning: develop the mindsets and skills for success in college, career, and life (initiative, responsibility, grit, collaboration)

Ethics: treat others well and stand up for what is right (empathy, integrity, respect, compassion)

Service: put learning to use to improve communities (citizenship)

Complex Work: demonstrate higher-order thinking, multiple perspectives and teaching

Craftsmanship: create work that is accurate and beautiful from concept to completion

Authentic Work: demonstrate original thinking and voice, connect to real-world issues, meaningful to the community beyond the school

This program improves preschool teacher effectiveness, honors their creativity and respects their critical role in crafting exciting and relevant learning experiences for every child.

Robust & Engaging Lesson Plans
This year we are introducing new, more robust subject matters: Science and Technology, Social Studies & the Arts. These more focused subjects of study introduce children to creative problem solving and the scientific method. With the use of technology and scientific processes, children develop and test hypotheses to gain a new understanding of the world we share and the people with whom we share it.

Measurements & Accountability
Our new Objectives for Development & Learning® and the GOLD® assessment system enable our teachers to observe and monitor our students’ progress through the entirety of early childhood development, growth and learning. The GOLD® assessment is aligned to the Arizona Early Learning Standards.
