In a recent article from The New York Times titled “Make School a Democracy,” the main emphasis revolves around a Columbian school and its education model, Escuela Nueva, or New School model.
The Escuela Nueva method focuses on four components – the curriculum and classroom, community, training, and management.
With this model, the school functions as a self-governing community, one where teachers, parents and students have input on how it operates. Parents are involved in the day-to-day life of these schools, while the educational philosophy influences their out-of-school lives, the article states.
In turn, this model has exhibited results which show students are more engaged with their community and they see the relevance of education and learning.
While the methods at Redeemer Classical Academy veer from this model, the basic are the same – they both project a nurturing community approach.
At a Classical Christian school, you will find a community of parents and teachers who share a commitment for teaching children to love learn and grow in godliness.
Smaller class sizes ensure that teachers know their students and are better able to serve them individually. Students know they are loved and not just another face in the crowd while openly manifesting deep appreciation and respect for their parents and teachers.
Teaching around a test score or a standard is common among many schools, but among Murfreesboro private schools, Redeemer Classical Academy understands the importance of each student and how they develop academically over time.
The sense of community is key in many cases, but especially in private school education.
