Philosophy & Goal

Our goal is to enable students toward the pursuit of excellence and guide them towards the attainment of their full potential. We do not subscribe to teaching to the test geared to generating acceptable student scores required for external funding.  We believe in a comprehensive and integrated approach that fosters understanding the concepts rather than mere memorization.

We credit the lack of challenge as the underlying reason for most students’ mediocre academic performance and the attendant loss of self esteem.  We provide a challenging curriculum and where needed, the necessary remedial instruction.  “Average” students may settle for lower expectations and poorer performance.  They may do enough to “get by” without ever reaching their full potential. Some students have problems learning and miss critical fundamental concepts. Students who are performing below average or have a learning disability want to succeed. They often feel defeated and stop trying.  Unless the pattern of failure is reversed, they may find it difficult to catch up. Some students face issues such as anxiety, ADHD or low self-esteem. Many behavioral issues become manageable once students begin to experience success and no longer need to protect their self-image. Students with these challenges are capable of success if the school is knowledgeable, understanding and willing to provide a program that addresses their needs in a positive way.  We also offer individual assistance to those students who have special needs or learning disabilities.

Middle school is often described as the most difficult by both students and families. At Pinnacle Prep School, we make this transitional time a little easier to traverse. Because of the individualized nature of our school, our staff and students are better able to overcome adversity that confronts teens during this time of their lives. We engage with the students until they master each unit before advancing to the next.  If a student has not shown command of the material, the student will repeat the assignment until it is mastered.

We foster an atmosphere which promotes a desire to learn and excel.  We have an integrated approach, tailored to individual student needs and aptitude.  Our class size is small comprising of eight students or less and is very conducive to monitoring each student’s progress and providing the necessary guidance for steady advancement.
