#34 – Exceeding the Standard
Overview
In stark contrast to the current educational landscape which often reduces students to a test score statistic, we believe that each child is a beloved individual, blessed with unique strengths and abilities. While we are aware of national objectives and while we certainly meet them, as a Christian school, we are not limited by them. In fact, our goal as a college preparatory institution is to exceed these minimum standards. We use an advanced comprehensive curriculum, and often our teachers even target benchmarks a grade level ahead, allowing students to embrace the challenge of more difficult material. At Linfield, your child's educational progress isn't dictated by an arbitrary set of bureaucratic goals; instead, it is lovingly planned and maintained by the teacher who knows him/her best. We have the freedom to meet students exactly where they are, and we believe in their limitless potential.
