Program content focuses on acquisition of basic skills. These skills are viewed not only as ends in themselves but also as tools to support a continuum of learning.
Skill development is emphasized in small, self-contained settings while varying degrees of departmentalization are introduced. Students begin learning to adapt to different teachers and class groups through many special programs that are tailored to meet the needs of each class. Transferring authority, developing organizational skills, and increasing personal responsibility prepare students for returning to district or advancing to Center School ‘s departmentalized high school program. Academic instruction and materials are adjusted for each student on a continuing basis.
