Students and teachers at Adairville School are participating in the Summit Learning Program. This personalized approach to teaching and learning supports Adairville School’s vision to ensure all students are academically, socially, and emotionally prepared for their next steps in life.
Developed by educators in partnership with nationally acclaimed learning scientists, researchers, and academics, Summit Learning is designed to help students develop the skills, knowledge and habits to succeed in college and lead a fulfilled life. More than 380 schools across 38 states participate in this program.
Jennifer Jenkins, a middle school Social Studies teacher at Adairville, stated, “Summit Learning is a hands-on curriculum with a focus on projects based on real-world scenarios, collaborative team work, and mentoring. Students also become advocates for themselves and have opportunities to take charge of their own learning.”
Additionally, teachers help students develop habits associated with lifelong learning, such as the ability to set and follow through on short- and long-term goals, self-awareness, and stress management. Students, parents, and teachers have access to an online learning platform that provides them with a detailed view of student progress.
Adairville teachers have access to high-quality curriculum support to provide an education tailored to students’ individual needs, aspirations, and how they learn best. “Summit Learning is a key part of our work to prepare every student for college and beyond,” said Deborah Davenport, a middle school Math teacher at Adairville. “We believe that this approach is making a positive difference in our students’ learning and in teachers’ opportunities to connect one-on-one with students.”
Adairville teachers want to give their students the gift of loving to learn and the awareness of how they learn best so that students can reach their potential—both in the classroom and beyond.
