WHAT MAKES NLA SPECIAL?
Newman Leadership Academy is a site-based TK-6 public charter school. The educational program is uniquely suited to meet and exceed the diverse educational needs of the students we serve.
The key characteristics of NLA Charter School include:
- Intensive focus on literacy. Our school’s intensive focus on literacy begins with the foundation of phonics and grammar so that students may develop their knowledge and understanding of composition and literature. Reading is a key component of our academic program and a love of reading for leisure and pleasure will be instilled in each student scholar.
- Teaching students how to learn and how to master grade-level skills. We teach students critical analysis and reasoning skills so that they know how to learn and how to access knowledge.
- Highly structured values-centered curriculum. Our school emphasizes learning and achievement and focuses on developing within each student a strong sense of self-discipline, personal responsibility, and respectfulness.
- Community Oriented Staff. Our school belongs to the community. Students, teachers, parents/guardians and administrators develop a strong relationship and work collaboratively to educate students and manage the school.
