Susan B. Anthony School helps its students be successful academically and socially by focusing on literacy, encouraging parental involvement, celebrating its rich cultural diversity, and promoting mutual respect for all. Staff are very focused on making every child a reader and every child a writer. All students spend time on computers to strengthen literacy skills, and teachers are learning and utilizing those practices which research has shown to be the most successful in developing those same skills.
All students have access to computers in their networked classrooms. Several stand-alone computers as well as large monitors, VCRs, DVD players, and cameras are also available to staff and students. In addition, we are excited to have document cameras in every classroom this year.
All English-language learners spend time daily in English-language development to increase their fluency with English, and most also receive primary language support. Team teaching and the pairing of students occur frequently. The preschool and kindergarten teachers work closely together to prepare preschool children for a successful entry into kindergarten.
Susan B. Anthony School is fortunate to have a nurse, a community liaison, and instructional aides as well as access to outside agencies to support its academic program. An extended day program not only supports the school’s literacy efforts, but also provides recreational and enrichment programs.
