The 10 Essential Elements of Our Success
At Lexis Prep, our mission is summarized by UHA!: We Understand, Honor, and Accommodate diverse learners, and we do it with passion! Everything we do stems from the UHA! principles. This includes the 10 Essential Elements of the Lexis Prep Success Model.
1. A Customized Curriculum
Each child has a unique learning style. A child learns best when teaching is personalized to fit the way he or she learns, rather than forcing the child to learn the way the school teaches. At Lexis Prep, every teacher strives to understand how your child learns best and to utilize that style in every teachable moment. Our Lexis Accent program customizes the educational program further by strengthening those specific areas that need more attention. Learn more about Lexis Accent.
2. High Academic Expectations
A Lexis Prep education is never watered down. It is a solid, age-appropriate, college-preparatory experience that will prepare your child well for further studies. Our academics are research-based and multisensory.
3. Integrated Executive Function Skills
Executive function is the ability to plan and organize oneself to accomplish a goal. Your child will learn executive function skills in every aspect of a Lexis Prep education, to best prepare for future educational opportunities, as well as life beyond school. It is the first thing we think about when we interact with a child, and it is the last thing we teach at the end of every day.
4. Integrated & Customized Social Skills Program
The knowledge we gain in school is greatly important. However, the ability to relate well to friends and other students is paramount to a successful and happy life. These skills are directly and consciously integrated into every aspect of our students’ day.
5. Painless and Intelligent Homework
It is imperative that your child learns how to effectively manage homework before entering high school and college, so we focus on developing these critical skills. Homework at Lexis Prep is individualized, manageable, and relevant. It is never busy work and should not be a source of frustration.
6. Management of the Learning Environment (not the child)
At Lexis Prep, we believe success is largely dependent upon managing the environment. We emphasize routines and transitions throughout the day. When a difficulty arises, we analyze the antecedents in order to determine where changes might be needed.
7. Continual Evaluation of Academic Progress
Our teachers continuously evaluate each student's academic progress. This is done through daily assessments, anecdotal observations, and more formalized testing such as the NWEA MAP assessment given three times per year.
8. Collaboration With Medical and Educational Providers
At Lexis Prep, we are part of a team working together to ensure your child's success. This includes coordination with other professionals, including physicians who are managing medication, psychologists and counselors, speech and language specialists, occupational therapists, and outside tutors.
9. Passionate and Highly Qualified Teachers
Out teachers are passionate, experienced, and dynamic. Most of our teachers have specialized training, a Master's degree, or both. They receive regular, ongoing training in order to continually develop their teaching and assessment skills.View Our Staff
10. Partnership With Parents
A strong partnership with parents is critical to the success of each student. This partnership begins with the initial interview and continues with daily communications, a monthly open forum for all parents, and parents visiting the classroom.
If only we had more than just one year at Lexis Prep! I believe the school has the best program available for children with learning difficulties, and ADHD. My son has both, and it was a blessing for him, and for us as his parents, to have a school to place him in that understands not only his challenges, but ours as his parents.Parent
