Challenging EVERY Student, Every Day
The goal of the Etgar ("challenge") program is to ensure that all students at AJA are challenged in every class, every day. The program includes differentiation in each classroom, acceleration for students as needed in math, leveled reading groups in the Lower School, and more. Our program grows daily to meet every student where he/she is in their learning and to drive their learning forward.
A key to the success of Etgar is the development of a culture that accepts and encourages every child to receive what he or she needs. This means that we provide each child with a unique educational experience. Some students will receive enrichment, while others will receive support. We want to meet a child where he/she is in their learning curve and develop his/her potential.
