Academic Enrichment Team

Housed in the heart of the Lower School and staffed by specialists trained in a diverse array of pedagogies, the AET was formed to enhance learning for the wide range of students who attend Presbyterian School and whose strengths and weaknesses become evident over time.  The AET enables PS to recognize and respond to the gifts and needs of our students in targeted and specific ways.  There are varied components of the AET program in the Lower School:

  • Working to ensure that the building blocks of learning are in place for each child by staying in close communication with teachers and discussing and administering various academic assessments. AET helps to monitor the growth of students and to provide academic support where necessary for students who demonstrate the need. 

  • Using this information, students who demonstrate a need work in small homogeneous groups focusing on a variety of academic areas; therefore providing an extension of the differentiated instruction that occurs in each PK-4 classroom.

  • The AET teachers strive to establish a partnership between and among teacher, parents, and community professionals to provide appropriate support for students with diagnosed learning differences.  AET teachers translate testing results and recommendations into specific interventions, accommodations, and strategies to be implemented in the classroom.  Individual academic, speech, or occupational therapy is not available; neither is a modified curriculum.

  • Each student will participate in Think Make Talk, which will develop critical and creative thinking skills, collaboration, and conceptual reasoning skills.
