Advanced Learning Options - ALO

North Beach is ALO school.  This means that we serve all students (identified or not as "Advanced Learners") who are performing above grade level.  In Reading and Writing students' academic needs are met by having them read and write at their current performance levels.  In Mathematics we have a "Walk to Math" program beginning in first grade, which provides instruction one year ahead of their current grade level.  In all subjects we aim to differentiate to support all levels of learners.
