I didn't know this stuff happens, I thought you just go to the school in your area. My son's teacher scheduled a parent/teacher progress meeting next week and she asked us to look at the three schools my son has a choice in attending next year. So I went to their websites and see the following:
Bishop Elementary has a multi-age learning environment utilizing the High/Scope model of curriculum delivery. At Bishop, different aged students are combined into the same classrooms which are divided into grade-level houses; Lower (K-1), Middle (2-3), and Upper (4-5). Students have the opportunity to mentor younger students and be mentored by older students.
The High/Scope model of instruction focuses on self-directed learning and responsibility. The daily schedule is designed to accommodate individual needs and interests.
Students in Spanish Immersion are taught the identical curriculum, however, the classroom language is Spanish. English is introduced later, allowing students to leave elementary school at grade level in two
Lincolnís Spanish Immersion program is the only program of its kind in Washtenaw County and one of the few language immersion programs in Michigan. It is housed in Bishop Elementary and utilizes the High/Scope model of curriculum delivery.Brick Elementary is a Washtenaw County Historic Landmark that at one time housed the entire student body of Lincoln Consolidated Schools. Now, elementary students benefit from a curriculum focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). STEM instruction incorporates all four of these disciplines into all aspects of the elementary curriculum.I'm trying not to be biased but it might be obvious which one I might be looking at more closely. I am not really sure what I should be looking for information wise though......Childs Elementary is a true community school and follows a community-inclusive approach to elementary education. This is accomplished through the educatorsí collaborative approach to teaching, a strong parent organization, and even the layout and construction of the building.
The Childs student body is primarily comprised of children from the Amberly Grove, Millpointe, Greene Farms, Lincoln Pines, and Whittaker Village neighborhoods, however, any family in the District may choose to attend Childs, based on space availability.
