Rushmore has a very diverse student population from all demographics spanning varying levels of academic abilities. To be successful core academic areas we’ve found our students need a unique combination of wrap around support services including work opportunities, a tailored blended approach to core curriculum and a connection between industry partners and career technology programs through the implementation of the simulated workplace model.
This approach is quickly manifesting into a micro-community rich with authentic learning focused on the school adjusting their approaches to the student needs while also providing them the relationships and skills needed to fulfill workforce expectations. The school utilizes the GradPoint Learning Management System curriculum to track student progress and provide a blended approach to instruction in the learning lab and the direct instruction rotations.
Each student schedule is individualized to work for their unique educational pathway and the school assists with life situations such as teenage parenting, full and part time work (often provided by partnerships with the school and community), home life, credit deficiencies, substance abuse, probation and many other individualized situations which make it difficult to attend and/or succeed at a traditional high school.
At Rushmore Academy teachers and students create a Personalized Learning experience for each student depending on the credits that they enroll with, their learning style, their work ethic and the skills they need to succeed.
