-Your community Core Knowledge*, standards-based, placed-based school,-
New Student Orientation - 12 April 6pm at AMC
Park in the rear of the building where our Front door is located. Follow the signs to get to the correct room. Hope to see you there!
* Core Knowledge by E.D. Hirsch, Jr. works on the premise knowledge matters. In our technology world (and believe me, American Charter uses technology as well and as much as any other school), it still is important that we teach students information - cultural literacy. Even though you can Google to find out information, to adequately use the information and to problem solve or make connections, you need a base of knowledge to build from - a foundation - a core set of knowledge! In reality each student needs both - the core knowledge of cultural literacy as well as the ability to think and find more information o their own.
Core Knowledge by E. D. Hirsch, Jr. is NOT Common Core. In fact, it is far from it. Core Knowledge believes students need a grasp of background information. Students don't need to be experts in all areas but they need to know the basics about our culture: past, present and future such as The Civil War, Billy the Kid, Faust, gamma rays, jazz, sea legs, Hitler and The Alamo.
Close to Perfect, Far from Normal.
We believe in the American "Can Do" Spirit.
Anyone can be successful if they are willing to work.
