Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to Imagine Schools Cortez Park!
We are excited to partner with you in the education of your child. Our school mission of Growing Minds, Guiding Hearts, Giving Hope and Gaining Leaders will be the premise to everything we do at Imagine Cortez Park.
Imagine Schools’ vision is for every student to reach his or her full potential and discover the pathways for lifelong success. As a national family of public charter school campuses, Imagine Schools partners with parents and guardians in the education of their children by providing high quality schools to prepare students for lives of leadership, accomplishment, and exemplary character. Imagine Schools aims for every student to gain more than one year’s growth during the academic year. We also strive for all students who enter Imagine Schools below grade level to attain grade level proficiency within three years or less. Those at or above grade level will be challenged to soar beyond expectations.
We are committed to provide a high quality educational experience to your child. To fulfill this commitment, Imagine Schools introduced the Academic Excellence Framework in 2013. The Framework provides the expectations, strategies, and tools for effective school leadership, instructional planning and execution, student-owned learning, parent partnership, and board guidance. Within the scope of the Academic Excellence Framework, the Imagine Schools Acceleration Model through the 4 E’s evolved as a systematic, purposeful process to develop a culture of excellence and improve student achievement in schools within the Imagine network. The Acceleration Model is a comprehensive, researched-based intervention that is established to produce marked gains in achievement through specific strategies that impact instruction, schedules that impact time on task, and tools that impact efficiency. Imagine Schools Cortez Park is excited to announce we will begin introducing components of this Acceleration Model for all students during this school year and full implementation with fidelity of this model by 2018 – 2019.
Imagine Schools Cortez Park offers servant school leadership styles and therefore incorporates an open door policy. If for any reason needed, please visit with the school leaders. Thank you for choosing our school and taking the time to read our Parent/Student Handbook with your son/daughter(s). If you have any questions regarding this handbook, please give us a call at 602-589-9840.
Imagine an education that inspires success in school and in life. Imagine expectations high enough to live up to your child’s potential. Imagine teachers who encourage aspiration and empower achievement. You’ve just imagined the education awaiting your child at Imagine.
