Challenging EVERY Student, Every Day
All students in our school deserve to be challenge in every class, every day. It is the goal of Etgar to ensure that is happening. The program includes differentiation in every classroom, acceleration for students as needed in math, leveled reading groups in the Lower School, and more! Our program is developing every day to meet every student where she is and drive her to grow in all her learning.
Fair is Fair
A key to the success of Etgar is the development of a culture that accepts and encourages every child to receive what he or she needs. This means every child is provided a unique educational experience. Some students will receive enrichment, while other will receive support. We will meet every child where he is in his learning and develop his potential.
