Who We Are
City Heights Prep At a Glance
Meet Our Staff
We believe that academic motivation for students is enhanced by strong relational connections with staff that care about their success, and invest in their growth.
Our staff is made up of individuals that strive to accomplish this by cultivating a school and classroom culture where respecting one another, trying one’s best, making good choices, working hard, encouraging each other, and recognizing that everyone is important are things that are championed and celebrated.
Individual Online Learning
Each of our students has access to their own computer
This allows us to provide them with the best possible resources for their academic development. In addition, computer access is provided in both Tutoring before school and Study Hall after school so that our students always have a quiet place to finish up homework and to receive extra help from teachers.
Life Skills Mentoring
Each student attends a Seminar Class, aimed at equipping them with life skills that will further their success
We know that rigorous academics can only go so far if they aren’t accompanied by the right life skills and emotional development. That’s why we’ve developed a Seminar course focused on providing students with organizational skills such as checking grades, tracking academic progress, managing calendars, and keeping materials organized. In addition, it provides explicit instruction in skills such a conflict management, creating presentations, etiquette, financial literacy, goal setting, handling stress, hygiene, professional dress, public speaking, and researching colleges.
Small Class Sizes
A typical classroom has a 16:1 student to instructional staff ratio
In this way, students have access to help whenver they need it. In addition, our schedule creates a situation in which teachers and students spend more time together consistently and teachers are spread less thin in terms of the number of different students they work with each day. This model optimizes the relational aspect of the student teacher interaction.
