The Level Up Academy curriculum reflects the needs of all learners and is tracked for each student through personalized learning plans. Curriculum mapping is done by the teachers within the Teacher Professional Practice to ensure alignment with state standards.
The teachers collectively choose behavior and classroom management systems designed to create an engaging school community based on community building and positive relationships. Restorative Practices, Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS), and the school's motto of #weCODE are implemented school-wide. These practices pertain not only to students, but also to teachers, administrators, and members of our school board. When we hold the same expectations, supports, and values for all community members we create a welcoming and positive environment!
While parts of the curriculum consist of online leveled games and the use of digital platform instructional and assessment tools, the teacher and student explore multiple approaches to achieve learning goals. Through mentor meetings, community building circles, and a focus on growth mindset, problem-solving, and design-thinking we maintain a positive learning environment where students thrive!
New in Fall of 2021, we are unveiling our most personalized program yet, LUA Learning Pathways³. This program takes personalized learning to a whole new level by allowing students to choose the learning path that best suits their strengths and needs. We are thrilled to be taking this innovative step toward deepening our personalized and strength-based programming for all!
Our #weCODE expectations are the foundation of daily life at Level Up Academy.
Both adults and children in our community are accountable to these expectations -
Cooperation, Ownership, Do Your Best, Everyone Matters
This is because positive environments are the only environments for learning!
All of our students, K-8, receive a personalized learning
plan that guides their learning
journey and documents their growth.
Learning is fun at Level Up Academy!
We believe in student choice,
self-paced learning, personalized
pathways, and the intentional use
of technology and games to
grow all learners.
All of our students, K-8,
learn computer programming
as a part of their regular curriculum.
We make relationships a priority.
We understand the power of connection and belonging as
it relates to educational success.
The grades we serve begin in Kindergarten and go through eighth grade. Our small class sizes provide higher teacher contact time in comparison to schools with a larger population.
By tapping the intrinsic motivation and curiosity of every child, we deliver higher than usual growth.
All children have limitless joyful curiosity and
capacity for reaching their potential.
