Dear Confluence Academy-South City Families,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Confluence Academy-South City.
We consider it a privilege to work with your children and look forward to fostering a challenging, nurturing, and fun learning environment. The staff at Confluence Academy-South City places an emphasis on collaborating with each other so that students are receiving the best instruction possible. We believe that all students have the ability to succeed both academically and personally and look forward to working with students to accomplish this goal.
Beginning in kindergarten, our students receive a solid foundation of reading skills, writing, mathematical reasoning and critical thinking. We are excited to have added a pre-kindergarten class this school year. With a strong foundation in literacy, these students will enter kindergarten well prepared to succeed.
Our curriculum is enhanced with engaging strategies and new technologies. Most of all, classroom instruction is differentiated, so our students get what they need to maximize learning to do their best. We have implemented 1:1 technology classrooms in all 3rd through 8th grade classes, where students have access to Chromebooks on a daily basis to allow for more individualized learning. We have two library media centers and an excellent physical education program to round out the perfect school experience for all of our students.
Confluence Academy-South City has a diverse student body. To meet the needs of all of our students, we have a number of teachers who are highly qualified in English as a Second Language (ESL). Our classroom and designated ESL teachers work directly with ESL students based on the assessment of their English language skills. It is one of many programs we have to meet individual student needs as we move toward a common goal.
I am honored to be the principal of this wonderful school. You are welcome to contact me if you have any further questions or information to share. I would like to personally thank all the students and parents for selecting Confluence Academy-South City as your school of choice.
Pamela Davenport, Ed.S.
