WE MAKE LEARNING FUN

We foster partnerships between our parents, our teachers, and our community to create a learning environment that improves student achievement that include:

Adjusting Curriculum To Meet Students Needs

Our program allows for us to break up the day to provide our students with more time in subjects they need the most. Our teachers have a say in the curriculum they teach and tailor learning to meet specific needs.

Creating A Unique Culture

In addition to building upon the core academic subjects, we infuse project based teaching methods that focus on Science Technology Engineering or Math (STEM) education, performing arts, college preparation, career readiness, character and leadership development civic engagement, global awareness.

Interactive After School Program

Providing a safe and interactive environment is one of our highest priorities. We draw upon the most effective academic enrichment, music, physical fitness, nutritional, and life skill programs to challenge children and make learning fun.

OUR PRIMARY COMMUNITY

Our Primary Community consists of Kindergarten through 3rd grade students. These emerging readers are in a self- contained learning environment, which means that our primary students are spending a good portion of their day in the classroom with their peers. The instruction of our qualified teachers are guided by the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and accompanied by the use of centers, hands-on activities, and differentiated instruction that keep our students engaged and keep learning fun.

Our English Language Arts teacher energetically utilizes proven instructional strategies that encourage students to be active participants in the Daily 5, which help improve reading fluency and comprehension:

The Daily 5:

  • Read to Self
  • Work on Writing
  • Read to Someone
  • Listen to Reading
  • Word Work

These strategies in tandem with our McGraw-Hill Texas Treasures curriculum, and the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) support our TPS students as they begin to mature from emergent to fluent and lifelong readers and writers.

Through the TEKS, our desire is to achieve educational excellence through skills for mathematics and is guided by the college and career readiness standards.  Our Math teacher pairs proven instructional strategies with Pearson’s enVision 2.0 Texas curriculum to emphasize content connection and invite in-depth student exploration on major topics. Thinking, mathematical fluency and computational understanding. Math manipulatives and hands-on centers provide students the opportunity to make math come alive in a way that is relatable to their world view.
Texas Preparatory School students are encouraged to explore the world of engineers and scientists. Our science teachers provide students the opportunity to investigate and explore their world on a daily basis. Our Primary Science classes include planning and safely implementing classroom and outdoor investigations using scientific processes, including inquiry methods, analyzing information, making informed decisions, and using tools to collect and record information, while addressing the major concepts and vocabulary, in the context of physical, earth, and life sciences.
Grades Kindergarten – 3rd grades are enrolled in social studies courses.  Students will  engage in in-depth research, enable youth to become productive, caring and responsible citizens, and teach them to become culturally competent and socially aware of other cultures.

Students, working independently or in collaboration with a mentor, investigate a problem, issue, or concern; research the topic using a variety of technologies; and present a product of professional quality to an appropriate audience.

Our High-Yield Learning (HYL) activities are designed to provide our students with “fun with a purpose” experiences that are hands-on, interactive and intentionally develop critical thinking or other skills.

Our incentive based and team building activities are labeled “high yield” because they extend learning by providing opportunities to practice skills such as:
–  communication skills (reading, writing, verbal communication)
– problem-solving skills (math, science, technology)
– healthy living skills (integrating diet and exercise into one’s life, avoidance of risky behaviors)
-character and citizenship (the rights and responsibilities of citizenship, civics, volunteerism and civility)
