Historically, according to the National Summer Learning Association, students who do not engage in any educational activities over the summer lose at least two months of grade level English and mathematical computation skills. And now, with the new Common Core State Standard for Language Arts and Math, it is especially important for children to stay on top of the skills they spent building upon in the previous school year. As explained in full on the Common Core’s website, talents in both areas of academics—content and skills—are equally important for students taking today’s tests.
Enrolling your child in summer enrichment programs, such as Eye Level Math & English, will prevent this seasonal “brain drain,” keeping students focused, encouraged, and prepared for the next school year. The successful, Common Core compliant curriculum is available at the Upper East and Upper West FasTracKids learning centers and is unlike any other available in the city. Specifically for kids aged 4-12, the programs are designed to help students improve their mathematical thinking and Language Arts skills by enabling them to master fundamental concepts as they progress through their studies.
In an effort to customize the program for each child and achieve the best results, an assessment is conducted. This allows each child to have a customized starting point depending on their ability, regardless of his/her age and/or school grade. The philosophy of the program is literally to meet each child at his or her “eye level."
