As a public school of choice, PRA offers students and their families a curriculum alternative. The academic program follows the Core Knowledge Foundation’s content based curriculum as outlined in the Scope and Sequence and in the book series by E.D. Hirsch, Jr., What Your First Grader Needs to Know, et al.PRA has high academic expectations and emphasizes the mastery of basic skills, such as language arts and mathematics. Teachers strive to integrate curriculum and instruction across disciplines and to develop students’ problem solving and critical thinking skills. Homework assignments are given on a regular basis to reinforce classroom learning. Character values include integrity, respect, responsibility and compassion and are strongly encouraged. We are fortunate to have such a talented and dedicated staff to meet the needs of every student that passes through our hallways. The success of the school is due to everyone that works here from our instructional aides that go above and beyond their required duties, to our facilities manager that takes great pride in keeping our school safe and looking great, to our teachers that spend countless hours nurturing, teaching and inspiring our students, and to the conscientious office staff and administration.
