ABOUT US

 

Coral Community Charter School IS A STATE-CHARTERED, PUBLIC-APPROVED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL THAT OPENED ITS DOORS IN AUGUST 2012.


We currently have boys' and girls' classrooms for Pre-K through sixth grade. At Coral Community Charter, we are dedicated to providing single-gender classes, quality instruction, individualization, and family/community involvement in order to ensure students' proficiency.


The top three school districts in the United States, as rated by Education Week 2011, had a total of 36 single-gender programs. Coral Community Charter School is the first in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Separate classrooms provide opportunities that do not exist in co-ed classrooms. Gender is not ignored at Coral Community Charter School. Our awareness of physiologic, developmental, and learning style differences between boys and girls allow us to help every individual student to be successful.


The teachers at Coral Community Charter School complete professional programs specific to single-gender teaching and additional training that is within their areas of expertise. This training enables our staff to utilize the natural strengths of both boys and girls to ensure their success in developing an academic foundation. Single-gender classes provide an opportunity for increased differentiation that addresses the gender-unique academic, social, and emotional needs of elementary students.


In addition to single-gender education, the teachers at Coral Community Charter School use data to report student achievement and individualize learning based on student need. Each of our students has the opportunity to learn at an individualized pace that contributes to that student's success.


Family and community involvement is important to the success of Coral Community Charter's students. Together with families we sign an contract outlining shared responsiblities for the success of our students. We also develop constructive and meaningful community partnerships, allowing our students wide variety of exposure to academic paths, career choices, community support opportunities, and cultural experiences.
