Social Competence

                       

Eagle classrooms provide opportunities for students to learn how to work cohesively with their peers, effectively express emotions with words, and grow into respectful communicators. Starting in kindergarten, teachers use the Social Skills Improvement System to evaluate the social development of students and address any problem behaviors.

Multi-Sensory Therapy Room

Eagle’s Multi-Sensory Therapy Room – directed by a full-time Occupational Therapist – provides educationally stimulating visual, auditory, movement, and tactile experiences which help students with various exceptionalities learn in an environment that is tailored to their specific educational needs. Use of this equipment has been shown to help children with autism, challenging behaviors, developmental disabilities, mental illness, and learning disabilities.

Outdoor Playground

Calming children down is a daily challenge in any elementary school, which is why we made a conscious effort to build in features that could help our kids expend their energy. During the construction of our campuses, we were adamant about maintaining as much outdoor playground space as possible to allow for an active recess. In September 2016, Target and national non-profit KaBOOM! awarded Eagle Academy a $15,930 grant to use toward the purchase of an Imagination Playground in a Cart™, an innovative playground equipment system. The playground has been used to encourage our children to use their imaginations daily.
