YSCP focuses on two student constituencies: those native speakers of American English who wish to engage a curriculum which fosters a global perspective and promotes appreciation and understanding of world regions, cultures, and global issues, and those whose native language is not American English, during their transition into the American educational system and culture.
Through an innovative language immersion program, which relies heavily on a rigorous academic curriculum for mastery of core knowledge and skills, YSCPCS seeks to develop students (initially, K-5) who are conversant in at least two major world languages (in addition to English), who understand the interdependence of the world’s peoples, and who attain proficiency not only in basic academic subjects, but also in knowledge of other countries, their people, and their roles in influencing world history and present international issues.
This school recognizes that academic abilities range from the intellectually gifted to the academically challenged. Each student will be encouraged, through adaptations or additions to individual programs of study, to strive for his or her maximum potential. The educational environment includes families, teachers and students communicating on a regular basis to assess and optimize students’ successes and to incorporate activities which contribute to complete personal, social, physical and esteem development.
