Offering Differentiated Instruction Through Small-group Learning, Direct Instruction, Whole Group, & One-on-one Delivery
What We Believe
The teachers, administrators, and Staff at McIntosh Area School are unified in their belief that all children have the ability to learn, are curious, creative, and can succeed.
No two students have exactly the same skills or learning styles. That's why we provide differentiated instruction through small-group learning, direct instruction, whole group, and one-on-one delivery. Our small class sizes allow us to identify the needs of each of our students and tailor their instruction accordingly.
Our Main Goal
McIntosh Area Charter School takes a whole-child approach to elementary education. Teachers, administrators, counselors, and support staff work together to meet the intellectual, social, behavioral, and emotional needs of each and every child we serve.
