We also believe that children must become literate and articulate, mathematically competent, technologically adept, and have the opportunity to develop their creative and physical talents and abilities.
We recognize our responsibility to generate enthusiasm and excitement for the summer by providing a curriculum that is relevant, integrated and age-appropriate. We believe that children will quite naturally expand their understanding and knowledge of mathematics in a setting that cultivates an active, participatory approach to learning.
The ability to analyze, evaluate and employ critical thinking skills in mathematics can only be developed when relevant life experiences require the consistent application of these skills.
We believe that the responsibility to support, encourage and nurture each child is one we share as partners with parents and guardians. We recognize the need to create a school culture that is committed to academic excellence and responsive to individual patterns of growth and development.
Math Enrichment’s vision is based on preparing children to function effectively in future classes; to think independently, critically and creatively; to become collaborating members of daily classroom activities; and most importantly, to become lifelong learners. We strive to create and maintain an atmosphere that fosters the healthy emotional, intellectual, social, and physical growth of each student. We recognize mastery of basic skills as a primary goal. We acknowledge that we learn best in an environment of sharing, caring, laughing, questioning, risking, and growing. We want all students to live, grow and have fun!
This could only be accomplished through a commitment to attract and enroll students from a diverse set of backgrounds. In its first year, Math Enrichment opened its doors to 25 students in one Algebra Class. Today, we have grown to eleven site locations throughout the Bay Area and San Diego.
We have also extended our curriculum to include English/Math Combo Class for elementary and middle school students to complement our high school level WASC Accredited math courses. Math Enrichment has assisted thousands of middle and high school students to obtain higher math level placement. Students we have previously recommended for a higher math placement have over a 90% success rate of earning an “A or B” in his or her mathematics course during the upcoming school year. Our staff is proud of these accomplishments and plan for the same success this year. We hope to see you this summer!
