Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Einstein School is a division of Creative Learning4Kids, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity. Since 1999, Creative Learning has provided academic evaluations and one-on-one tutoring for children in financial need.
The Einstein School is for students 5th through 12th grade. Starting in the Fall of 2014, we will be offering two Dual Credit College Courses; College Algebra and College English.
We believe that the basis for a sound education rests not solely on the rote memorization of facts, equations and rules but on the ability of the student to creatively imagine the implications of this material on the world around them. As educators we strive not only to carefully instruct our students in a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, but also to help them develop the ability to think creatively; to nurture their curiosity and to encourage them to ask, "What if...?
We seek to educate the whole child; a child well armed with knowledge and with an ability to apply what has been learned in real world situations. Einstein students work in an environment where creative thinking is not just encouraged but applauded and cherished; an environment where mistakes are viewed not as failure but as the exploration of a path that led in the wrong direction. The self-confidence our students gain through hard work, acceptance, and tolerance of new ideas allows them to embrace personal integrity and to develop a deep sense of responsibility that allows them to make wise and ethical choices. A rigorous education; abiding curiosity; and respect, compassion, and service to others are the principled foundation on which Einstein students will build their future and the reason that an Einstein education is special.
The Einstein School provides a structured and positive environment that allows our students to work in an atmosphere conducive to developing self-esteem while growing intellectually, morally, socially, and emotionally. We provide a challenging educational program and broad-based activities designed to help students experience the joy of learning. While the intensive Einstein curriculum is similar to other college preparatory tracks in schools across Texas, the details of the presentation of this curriculum give our students distinct learning advantages.
There are other advantages of an Einstein education that are not immediately apparent. A move to Einstein from a student’s home school gives them a second chance for success. Even intelligent children are not immediately successful. Sometimes they need a second chance.
Finally, our students are given the opportunity to excel above their grade level without having to be removed from their peer group.We Provide...
- An engaged learning atmosphere created by maintaining a low teacher/student ration of no more than 8:1.
- A collegiate style schedule made up of four nine-week quarters that provide ample time to thoroughly investigate each topic of exploration.
- An A/B Block Schedule that allows for longer periods of focused study in core classes every other day.
- Intensive writing composition instruction in the belief that each student’s mastery of articulate and effective writing skills is of paramount importance in a college preparatory program.
- An emphasis on a broad and comprehensive education in The Arts. It is our belief that arts education is invaluable in improving academic achievement.
- Instruction in powerful technology skills including: the opportunity to work with the latest software to build and design websites, instruction in current social media trends, blogging, and hardware usage.
- Junior and Senior seminars designed to help students choose the right college or university and to prepare students for a life away from home.
- The inclusion of community service into our curriculum as one of the three foundations of an Einstein education.
Each child will begin course work at The Einstein School with their own Comprehensive Educational Matrix (CEM) detailing goals, objectives, and benchmarks for their high school education plan and college preparatory experience. There are three distinct aspects of The Einstein School curriculum.Academic
The Einstein School uses the Texas Tech Independent School District (TTUISD) curriculum as a starting point for instruction. But, our strong college preparatory vision requires that classroom study go well beyond the basic TTUISD course load. Our teachers deliver an in-depth study of subjects with a hands-on, project-based approach.Enrichment
In addition to our use of the TTUISD curriculum, Einstein students receive additional instruction and exposure in the areas of technology, writing, The Arts, and all aspects of preparation for post secondary education. Einstein Students will also receive master class instruction from guest lecturers from a wide variety of fields.Community Service
25 hours each semester are devoted to community service by each of our students. Service to the community is essential to the development of a strong, compassionate, and ethical young adult.
Qualified by the NCAA for high school athletes through the University of Texas Austin K-16 high school program.
As a 501 (c)3 public charity, The Einstein School is committed to giving back to the community and supporting families in financial need. Einstein students will be attempting to collect 1000 lbs of canned food for the North Texas Food Bank to help support local food pantries each month. The Einstein School is asking local chamber businesses to help Einstein students by collecting canned or nonperishable goods and bringing them to us on Friday mornings.
We are also in need of water jugs to fill up our water coolers.
We have a small kitchen and provide some limited food and snacks for students. We are always in need of food items such as; crackers, cookies, breakfast cereal, milk,fresh fruit,etc.
