Asante Preparatory Academy academic program focuses on student growth by helping each student progress at an individual pace and depth of learning by strategically using data to help increase students' understanding and depth of learning. Our ultimate goal is prepare students to take high school credit while still at Asante. To help parents/guardians understand what to expect in each grade, Academic Success Guides have been developed for each grade.
For grades K-3, Dysart Schools use Florida Virtual, Math in Focus and Illustrative Mathematics for instruction. Students develop their skills in counting, operations and algebraic thinking, number and operations, fractions, measurement/data, and geometry. For grades 4-8, we use the Illustrative Mathematics curriculum delivered by Imagine Learning (4-5) or McGraw Hill (6-8). Students construct mathematical knowledge by actively engaging in authentic math tasks which connect and deepen prior knowledge.
Dysart Schools use 95 Percent Group Phonics, HMH Into Reading, Florida Virtual, CommonLit, HMH Journeys, and SAVVAS myPerspectives to develop literacy skills in Phonological awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency, and Comprehension. Students develop their skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking, and language use as described in the state standards for each grade level.
Dysart Schools use Discovery Science Tech book curriculum, as well as Generation Genius and Mystery Science. Students actively participate in science practices, and look through the lens of cross cutting concepts, as they explore the content described in the state standards for each grade level.
Dysart Schools use the Florida Virtual, McGraw Hill Networks, and Discovery Education curriculums for the instruction of Social Studies. Students engage in inquiry based instruction where they explore the various content described in the state standards for each grade level.
Our mantra is “learn through play.” Learn through play is a core value that supports cognitive skills, physical growth, new vocabulary, social skills, and literacy skills.
Developmental preschool services are provided by certified special education and related services staff based on identified student needs.
ACCELERATED LEARNING SIGNATURE PROGRAM
Asante Preparatory Academy accelerates student growth by helping each student progress at an individual pace and depth of learning. At Asante, students will use collaboration and the problem solving process known as Design Thinking to address real-world challenges. Student data will be used to pinpoint where each student is on the learning path to allow for every opportunity for growth and acceleration in learning. We will provide all middle schoolers the option to earn at least a half credit course for high school.
Students will develop skills, knowledge, and dispositions to lead physically active lives. Physical Education class will include age and physically-appropriate activities centered around fitness activities, sports, health science, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Students will utilize various locomotor and non-locomotor skills to build coordination and balance. Students will learn skills related to lifetime activities including how to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, movement and how it impacts the human body, the rules, tactics, strategies, and etiquette of games and sports.
