Critical thinking, communication as well as solid basic academic skills are vital to children's success. I hear and I forget; I see and I remember; I do and I understand. In keeping with that old adage, the charter school seeks to empower children in their construction of knowledge. Key areas of ongoing concentration are parental involvement, basic skills mastery and fluency, critical thinking, and classrooms that are safe for risk taking; which models skills for collaboration, interdependence, democracy, conflict, resolution, negotiation, and mediation.
Respect is the thread that holds the school together; respect for one another, respect for diversity, respect for uniqueness, respect for the materials we use and respect for our work. Children and teachers work in an environment in which they are valued, and they value one another.
EPCS educates children in grades Kindergarten through eight. There are just 18 children in each class and two classes per grade level. Each class in grades K to 2 has a teacher aid.
