San Carlos Charter Learning Center opened in 1994 to serve students in Kindergarten through 8th grades. The school also uses a resource based curriculum with the Personalized Learning Plan (PLP) as a main focus.
The school curriculum is based on project-based learning in a nurturing environment. The goal is for the school to provide its students with a set of standards that they can carry with them into their lives as productive leaders of their communities.
Parents have mixed reviews on the teaching practices of the school. First off the school does have a unique way of teaching which not every parent appreciates. The teachers also do not use letter grades, but the students are still graded on their academic performance. Parents also stated that the school is focused so it is not for every child especially those that are easily distracted. Students stated that school is fun and teachers are very nice.
The Academic Performance Index showed an increase of 7 points from the previous year to a score of 925. The statewide goal is 800. Parents could not be more pleased with the score and are extremely happy with the increase as well. Teachers are highly praised for their innovative teaching styles that do work.
The California Standards Tests is used to learn if students are mastering core subjects. The various tests are given to 2nd through 11th grades in English, grades 2nd through 7th are given tests in math, and science tests are administered to students in grades 5th, 8th, and 10th, while history tests are given to students in 8th and 11th grades.
The percentage of students passing the exams was above average across the board for the 2nd through 8th grade exams. Parents stated that this a wonderful sign that the school is doing a great job with their no traditional methods.
With scores and percentages as seen above, you can rest assured the school is working really hard to provide students with the best education. To ensure the environment is best for your family, you should take a tour before enrolling your child.
