The GEM Center believes in excellence and equity for all children. We use Direct Instruction, an evidence-based curriculum, and this curriculum aligns with the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS). Our curriculum also incorporates a hands-on, expeditionary approach, and all programming is personalized based on each child’s unique interests, motivations and needs.
Learners at GEM are provided 1:1 direct instruction throughout each day and have opportunities to participate in small group instruction with a learner to teacher ratio of 3-4:1, and large group instruction with a ratio of 6-8:1. We intentionally keep our class sizes small to ensure our children achieve appropriate progress and become more confident and competent learners.
