Averill

Welcome to

Averill New Tech Elementary


Pre-K-3 School


Students at Averill New Tech Elementary will follow a project based learning model infusing technology into the curriculum with an emphasis on Science. Our New Tech program provides a culture that empowers students and teachers through a hands on approach ensuring  student academic, social and emotional  maturity.

Project based learning provides relevant experiences that students will find engaging and impacting. This model strengthens the classroom environment  for students through an emphasis on real world experiences, researching and investigating problems, and establishing communities of critical and ethical thinkers. Students will learn while doing, which will enhance their cognition through a supportive and collaborative culture

Averill’s technological environment fosters the culture of our 3 C's (Communication, Collaboration & Creativity) through New Tech’s online learning platform entitled ECHO. The ECHO system supports the work of our project based learning activities, and serves as the communication link between staff, students and parents through progress monitoring.

What makes Averill special?

 

  • One to one ipad and laptop accessibility
  • Community Partnerships including MSU, LCC, Siena Heights University and Faith Church
  • After School Tutoring in Literacy and Math
  • Before- and after-school child care offered through the Westside YMCA.

We are very fortunate to work in collaboration with the Tabernacle of David's Mens Ministry under the leadership of Pastor Larry Trice Jr. Volunteers from the church are providing mentoring and character development for our students through weekly one to one sessions, facilitating Boy Scouts as well as leading Parental Support Groups.

"The Bright Side" Newsletter - December 18, 2017

MISSION

Our mission is to successfully teach students to think critically and emphasize learning through cross curricular integration using project based learning activities. We are committed to providing an environment that emphasizes learning as an interactive process through tailoring instruction to meet the individualized needs of all students

VISION

We believe that learning is grounded in a technologically enhanced, student centered, project based approach. Students will engage in learning through inquiry, exploration, discussion and reflection. Teachers, as curriculum designers, strive to create innovative project based learning experiences that will engage our diverse population of students.  Students and teachers together develop personal qualities such as integrity, confidence, curiosity and reflection.
