Approach to Assessment
We employ an Assessment for Learning and Assessment as Learning approach in our classrooms. Students are supported in their learning with regular feedback from teachers and multiple opportunities to demonstrate their learning.

We place great importance on teacher professional learning, by offering individual funds and choice, as well as school funded opportunities. We also offer individualized, job-embedded PL through a coaching program. A Professional Growth and Supervision Plan is in place to support professional conversation and learning.

Student Support Services at Graded assist students in reaching their full developmental and academic potential by providing comprehensive programs addressing academic, personal, social, career, and further education. The individual needs and learning styles of each student are considered while acknowledging that children and adolescents learn at different rates and in different ways. Classroom teachers, special education teachers, ELL teachers, nurses, counselors, and division administrators work in a team alongside parents and students to design customized learning plans for eligible students. Together, we provide a range of services aimed at facilitating student success in the school’s core educational program in a caring, supportive environment.
