With an eye toward stretching the minds of our students, Brawerman provides a rich, diverse, and sequential curriculum.
Academic programs, guided by standards and best practice, emphasize the introduction, exercise, and mastery of salient skills; the exposure to a particular body of core knowledge; the ability to use and evaluate knowledge through critical and independent thinking; and the goal of helping students seek and understand connections between ideas in their various studies. We believe that competence and confidence are related, and through planned lessons and experimentation, students acquire both.
With a curriculum that builds on knowledge, skills and experiences of successive grade levels and introduces developmentally appropriate strategies, concepts and approaches, students are encouraged to expand their analytical and critical thinking and strive for academic excellence.
Throughout the school program, students are challenged intellectually, creatively and physically, and are guided in the development of strength of character and concern for others. We encourage students to wonder, to inquire and to be self-reliant, laying the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.
