Today's student is not what it used to be. Social media, technology and the world in general has changed the traditional learner into a whole new being. Students don't want to take assessments or learn to take a test. They are more inquisitive. They want to know how to use something or why they need to know it in the "real" world.
Did you know that most kids today don't know what a signature is? Or that they can't read important historical documents? Most also don't have any phone numbers memorized in the case of an emergency.
We know this and hope to turn our students back to what we see as the "norm."
What shocks you about today's students?

Benjamin Franklin started his business with only 3 pennies to his name.
City of Brotherly Love accepted all religions, when at one time other northern states were Puritan or Quaker.
Periodic Table is really just one big cheat sheet.
Everyday life is filled with experiments. Somone had to invent shampoo.
What did you learn today?

There are advantages and disadvantages to both sectors. Public schools offer the most economical solution and usually a great social outlet. They also are more likely to offer athletics, drama, and music extra-curriculars. Private schools on the other hand offer smaller teacher to student ratio, individualized instruction and opportunities to really master a student's educational goals.
Of course, that may seem one sided. However, I am curious, what does everyone else think? How can we create a balancing act between the two sectors?

Waterview knows that technology is the wave of the future. It keeps students engaged and believe it or not they learn more using it. We can use it to tutor from a distance, enrich in subjects, and even help finish that high school diploma. Let us know what your needs are and let us help finish the year out strong.
We also believe in research based programs. We don't issue EOG's or weighted finals. Let us know what you think. Do you believe EOG's are effective?
