The GEM Center believes in excellence and equity for all children. We use Core Knowledge and Saxon Math as our academic foundation (Scope & Sequence), and these curriculums align with the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS). Our curriculum is extensively modified to incorporate a hands-on, expeditionary approach, and programming is personalized based on each student’s unique interests, motivations and needs.
Students are provided 1:1 direct instruction throughout each day and have opportunities to participate in small group instruction with a student to teacher ratio of 3:1, and large group instruction with a ratio of 6:1. We keep our class sizes small to ensure our students achieve appropriate academic and functional progress.
